    Wallbies legend Michael Lynagh admitted to hospital with blood clots on his brain

    From: The Courier-Mail
    April 18, 2012 8:24PM


    Michael Lynagh - one of Australia's greatest rugby union players - is in a Brisbane hospital after reportedly suffering a stroke.

    The Courier-Mail understands Lynagh, 48, was visiting his hometown of Brisbane when he became ill. The Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital confirmed that Lynagh was at the hospital but declined to comment further.
    Lynagh has lived in London for many years since finishing one of the most decorated careers in the Wallaby jersey. The flyhalf was among the masterminds of the famous 1991 World Cup win which helped propel Australian rugby into the world's elite.
    Lynagh became the greatest pointscorer in Test rugby during his 72-match career for the Wallabies which finished in 1995.
    He moved to London during the advent of rugby's professional career to play for Saracens and he remained in the UK at the end of his career.
    Lynagh was known for his coolness on the playing field, never better emphasised than when he scored one of the most famous tries in Wallaby history.
    The Australians appeared down and out in the 1991 World Cup quarter-final against Ireland until Lynagh swooped on a pass from teammate David Campese to score a try. That enabled the Wallabies to win the game and go on to defeat the All Blacks and England to win their first world championship.

    I grew up watching him play - hopefully all goes well with his recovery.

    Chuck Norris has the greatest Poker-Face of all time. He won the 1983 World Series of Poker, despite holding only a Joker, a Get out of Jail Free Monopoly card, a 2 of clubs, 7 of spades and a green #4 card from the game Uno.
