What I'm wondering is, how much longer can he realistically play rugby, and does anyone have any ideas for what he could do in the future?

He still plays for Gloucester. His contract with that club expires at the end of this season so it could be that he is in his last season of Rugby anyway.

Age usually about 35 would see out most players even at club level. It is a very physical game. 80 minutes of almost constant running and tackling with maybe a short breather of a minute or two after a score. It isn't like American football where there are in effect two different teams - one offense and one defence (not to mention the special teams) but everyone plays offence and defence and they can go from one to the other and back again within the space of 30 seconds.

Like all sportsmen the major avenues open to him within his sport are coaching and commentating.

And they don't wear any protective equipment like American football! That has to put even more stress on their bodies!

Well whatever is in store for Mr. Tindall, I wish him well.

That drunken night during Rugby World Cup with the blonde 'wasn't an enormous crisis for those I love' insists Tindall
Quote:
Mike Tindall has spoken for the first time about his drunken antics with a bar room blonde, unapologetically playing down its impact on his new wife Zara Phillips. The former England rugby captain – who married the Queen’s granddaughter just weeks before the escapade – insisted ‘it just wasn’t some enormous crisis’ to those he loves. But he did concede, with characteristic understatement, that it ‘wasn’t ideal’ he had ended up ‘hammered’.

Mike Tindall's current events? The only thing he should be doing currently is helping to name that baby, I wanna hear the name.

I can't find the thread of general information: Does Michael have siblings? if so, are they married or have children? I know that his father is named Phil. Is that a nickname like Mike or his proper name? Thanks
