Dominic Scoble

Playing for Llandaff North RFC in 2018, Dominic was badly tackled during a rugby match and had to be taken to A&E following a serious injury to his knee.

A knee specialist at the hospital discovered that he has a damaged medial collateral ligament (MCL), torn his hamstring and had damaged his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). The full extent of the damage was confirmed after X-rays and an MRI scan and the damage resulted in an enforced lay-off from work for 12 weeks. As a cable joiner, Dominic’s work involves him being on ‘live’ construction sites and his role requires him to wear protective clothing which he was unable to wear due to the leg brace that he had to wear for 12 weeks. He also had to stop working weekends for the WRU at the Millennium Stadium.

With a wife on maternity leave and no insurance cover or other means of income support, The Voyagers made a donation to help with the immediate medical costs, rehabilitation & physiotherapy and travel costs.

Luckily, due to the prompt action of the hospital staff and an orthopaedic specialist, Dominic did not need reconstructive surgery and is well on the way to making a full recovery. He is also now the proud father to baby Amelie and a new member of The Voyagers!
