Injury-scam rugby physio struck off

A former Harlequins physiotherapist who admitted to five instances of faking blood injuries in European rugby matches has been struck off.

The Health Professions Council conduct and competence committee told Steph Brennan that "by reason of your misconduct, your fitness to practice is impaired."

Brennan was involved in the staging of Harlequins winger Tom Williams' blood injury during the Heineken Cup quarterfinal match against Leinster in April 2009.

The supposed injury allowed a specialist kicker to come on to the field for Harlequins, who ended up losing 6-5.

The decision came Tuesday, after a two-day hearing in London.
