'The headaches wouldn’t seem to go away' - Leigh Halfpenny opens up about concussion nightmare
Leigh Halfpenny has spoken out about his frustration at being sidelined for three months with concussion.
The Scarlets full back missed Wales’ Grand Slam winning Six Nations campaign after suffering a concussion during an autumn victory over Australia on November 10.
He described the worry of persistent headaches when he tried to return to training.
The 30-year-old said it was the uncertainty surrounding the injury which took it's toll on him.
Halfpenny made his competitive return for the Scarlets at the end of February.
A game which he says was extra special because it was the first match his daughter attended.
