When the person who has influenced and mentored you to become the person you are announces they have retired it hurts. it’s worse for Kenya 7s Collins Injera after his mentor and brother Humphrey on Friday surprised Kenyans with an official retirement message.
Collins, who looks up to his brother, posted an emotional message that left many posting heart emoji’s.
Bro, I don’t even know where to start. Your retirement announcement is very emotional for me, as you are the reason I started playing rugby.
You have truly influenced, guided, encouraged and critiqued me, and this has shaped me and made me the sportsman and the person that I am today.
We have shared plenty of good times and tough times together, and made great memories. I am sure we have enough content for a book on our escapades and life lessons. But that’s for another day.
The two brothers are such look alike that many of their fans tend to confuse them.
Collins continued to pour his heart out
Seeing you hang up your boots feels like a part of me has left. I feel like you still have a lot more to offer this great sport. I feel like you should come back and get to 160 tries…and more. But like you said it was never meant to be.
So bro, as you move on to other things, just know you have inspired me, and you have inspired thousands of people out there.
Asante sana TALL. You are one of a kind.
We will forever cherish the memories he made and hongera, and we are proud of you tall #AhsanteTall
