Rob Elliot didn’t just play great for us last season, when he came into the side for the injured Tom Krul and was our Player of the Season but he’s also a brave lad and a leader.
Rob’s had that dodgy thigh of his that was always threatening to go and he would be out of action for months.
But the good news today is while he is recovering from the terrible ACL knee injury he picked up playing for Ireland in a friendly game in late March, he finally had surgery yesterday that will fully repair the injured tendon in his thigh.

Going well thanks. Got my thigh done and it doesn’t effect my knee or the recovery time! https://t.co/9oiDns7i8F
