Federico Pucciarello tastes Peter Stringers boot

first_imgFriday Dec 21, 2007 Federico Pucciarello tastes Peter Stringers boot Peter Stringer is officially the shortest international scrumhalf currently playing the game. He’s about 4ft2 and probably weighs the same as a 13 year old girl. Despite that, he’s a quality player, and has represented Ireland in over 70 tests and has been a stalwart of Munster rugby, notching up over 100 caps. Amazingly though, in the recent Munster vs Llanelli game, that size 4 boot managed to knock big Argentinian Italian prop Federico Pucciarello to the floor when this freak accident occurred. Entering a ruck, I doubt Pucciarello ever thought in his wildest dreams that this would happen. But, as with the great tackles we see Stringer making time and time again, for a small guy he clearly packs more of a pu… kick than we all thought.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

That’s the big message we’re trying to get across that no matter how stressed, fit or overweight a person is, they could have high blood pressure.As blood pressure increases with age, Dr Glynn recommends that any person over the age of 50 should get a blood pressure check every six months, and the same for any person who has been diagnosed with hypertension.He added that lifestyle changes such as regular exercise, weight loss and a low fat diet can help to ease people’s blood pressure.“I recommend exercising for 20 minutes a day, five days a week and weight loss also helps as there is a direct relationship between weight and high blood pressure. Reduce your salt intake and stick to a low fat diet, and if you are diagnosed, it’s important that you are on the right treatment and that you take your medication every day.”last_img read more
