Messages of support flood in for Michael Fatialofa

More than 760 messages of support for injured Warriors lock Michael Fatialofa have been sent in just five days to the special email address that has been set up by the club.

The messages include one from Brad Barritt, the captain of Saracens who were Warriors’ opponents when Michael suffered a neck injury in the Gallagher Premiership match at Allianz Park on January 4. Adam Leal, one of the Assistant Referees at the match, has also written to Michael.

Michael remains in a serious but stable condition in the intensive care unit of St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington.

Warriors set up the email address – fats@warriors.co.uk – last week to enable well-wishers to send messages to Michael and his wife Tatiana.

Michael and Tatiana are thankful of the messages they have received so far and the support that has been shown by the rugby community.
