Nakuru RFC loose forward Amos Obae has taken a break from rugby for an undisclosed period following recurrent injuries.

Obae suffered a tibia injury in 2020 and had to stay out of action till Mid July 2021. He returned to action in their 40-15 loss to Kabras but has only lasted three months.

The former Kisii RFC forward picked an ankle injury during the Safari 7s Tournament held late last month as he played for the invitational side Red Wailers. He says he has found himself stuck and feels taking a sabbatical is the best decision for his self-development.

“I have been playing this beautiful sport for the last 5years. I recently found myself stuck in a loop, picking the same injuries over and over. My learning process stopped because of it and I haven’t improved for a while now.
Feeling the need for self-development, I have decided to take a sabbatical break from playing rugby until an undisclosed time,” he stated.

“I believe that the decision I have made is beneficial for both my team Top fry Nakuru RFC “Wanyore” and me.
As Mike Tyson said “you have to fight through some bad days to earn the best days of your life”
With that said…. BROTHERHOOD,” he added.
