Former Social Sec and popular player Chris Parsons will once again miss out on the chance to play in the Varsity rugby final due to a recurring knee injury.
Parsons played himself into contention to start the match against Leeds Met on Wednesday 3 September 2012, however another injury setback has denied his last chance at playing in the Varsity finale.
‘A couple of the injured lads will be on the touchline, giving out water and things, but I think I’ll be in the stands for a bit of atmosphere and maybe a few beers’
Parsons will be hoping that this disappointment is the first and only of his final season in Leeds.
‘If I played I’d be in danger of ruining the entire season, instead I’m hoping to get match fit and have a successful last season in Leeds.’
Snip’s absence will be felt on and off the pitch due to his popularity, and the rest of the squad will hope to welcome back their former social sec from injury sooner rather than later.
