“Worked with Dave while recovering from a broken ankle sustained at the junior rugby World Championship, detailed rehab plans and all the support I could ask for had me back on the pitch on schedule, couldn't recommend highly enough!
“"I worked with David at the u20 World Championship. He was great to work with, very professional and made sure i was on top of my rehab. Having come from an amateur Physio environment to working with David his attention to detail and treatment was top class and if it wasn't for him it could have ended my tournament a lot quicker. Would highly recommend."
Zander Fagerson, Scottish Rugby International
