Cancer survivor Matt Eisenhuth to debut for Wests Tigers against Sharks
By The Mole 2 hours ago
Tigers debutant Matt Eisenhuth will cap a remarkable victory over cancer when he runs out for his first game for the club against Cronulla tomorrow night. Doctors diagnosed Eisenhuth with cancer in his left leg when a nagging injury refused to heal three years ago when he was playing at Penrith. The medicos sent Eisenhuth for a series of tests that revealed he had a tumour in the leg - and there were serious doubts then that he would never play again. But after surgery and treatment - and a long journey back to full health and fitness - the 24-year-old forward is now ready to make his mark in the NRL.
