Mose Masoe takes his first steps unaided just eight months after suffering a serious spinal injury

Mose Mosoe who's overcome a horrendous sporting injury and months of recovery to take, today, his first unaided steps.

We've followed the story of Hull Kingston Rovers' Mose Masoe since he suffered a serious spinal injury during a pre season game in January.

The 31-year-old was left paralysed from the chest down after a bone in his neck pinched his spinal cord during an innocuous tackle.

After emergency surgery Masoe was told he'd be lucky to walk again, but after regaining some feeling in his hands and legs he began making steady progress.

He quickly was able to walk on crutches and was allowed to leave Pinderfields hospital and return home where he continued his rehab with the help of his children.

With the help of physios at Flex Health the Prop has been making remarkable progress in his recovery.

Masoe has plans to join his teammates at Hull KR in non contact training in the next few weeks.
