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’.

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

BBC News - Mike Tindall agrees settlement with Sunday Express
Quote:
The former England rugby player Mike Tindall has agreed a settlement with Express Newspapers over a story about his marriage to Zara Phillips.

Tindall sued after the Sunday Express falsely reported rumours last February about his marriage to the Queen's granddaughter, his spokesman said.

Hearings were to begin next month but the newspaper group has "apologised unreservedly" and will make a payment.

The spokesman for Tindall said he would donate the money to charity.

Glad to see that someone stood up to the media for their slander of a person regardless of whom that person might be, the media has no boundaries when they want a story or headlines, it's all about the money to them anymore. MT seems like a nice guy and very much his own person, not some who follows the crowd and he has mind of his own..........good for him.

Mike Tindall: An Apology | Royal | News | Daily Express
Quote:
IN an article published on 10 February 2013 entitled “Zara and Mike in marriage blip” we reported rumours that Mike Tindall’s marriage was in trouble and that his wife had left the marital home

We accept that this was untrue and recognise that this reporting was intrusive.

We apologise to Mike Tindall for any distress the article may have caused him.

These sorts of cases are won regularly by celebrities.
