Owen Farrell This is another elegant plug-in.

Worcester Warriors lock Michael Fatialofa has shown “improved airflow through his chest and strengthening movement in one leg” in his first step to recovery from a serious neck injury.

The 27-year-old underwent successful surgery on his neck on Monday at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington to ease the pressure caused by bruising and swelling on his spinal cord, having suffered “reduced power and sensation in his arms and legs”.

Fatialofa still has a long road ahead as he continues to be treated in London, but his wife Tatiana has been by his bedside as much as possible after his condition was judged to have been good enough to grant extended visiting hours on Wednesday.

Writing on Instagram, Tatiana said that the New Zealand rugby star has shown improvements with both his breathing and movement in one of his legs, and praised Fatialofa for having “a positive, balanced, healthy-minded husband who has been dreaming up so many beautiful plans for our future”.

She added: “One step closer to 24 hours (a day accessibility), although that would be provided by a private centre so that’s our next prayer because Michael needs to make progression in order to be able to move into such facilities”.
