Former Connacht hooker in critical condition after suffering stroke

Former Connacht hooker Ethienne Reynecke is currently in critical condition after suffering a blood clot to his brain following a stroke last Thursday.

The South African spent two seasons at Connacht between 2011 and 2013 before moving back to his home country where he started playing with the Free State Cheetahs. Reynecke is currently in intensive care but Sport24 are reporting that he's in a stable condition and is being kept under sedation.

Reynecke finished his career with French club Pau and has since moved into broadcasting where he has served as a rugby commentator with SuperSport.
