Wallaby legend Michael Lynagh suffers stroke
Michael Lynagh, the Australian fly-half whose late try defeated Ireland back in 1991, has been admitted to hospital after suffering a suspected stroke.
Australian media are reporting that Australian World Cup winner Michael Lynagh has been admitted to hospital in his native Brisbane after collapsing. The Guardian are reporting he has blood clots in his brain.
Best remembered in this part of the world for the late try that beat Ireland in the 1991 World Cup quarter-final at Lansdowne Road, Lynagh was instrumental in helping the Aussies win that tournament, and he earned 72 caps for his country.
In recent years he has been a regular pundit on Sky Sports and he is believed to have been taken ill on a short visit to his home city.
Our thoughts are with him and his family.
