Newcastle Eagles player coach Fabulous Flournoy was discharged from hospital late Wednesday afternoon, following improvements to his health over recent days.

The club would like to thank everyone that has shown support for Fab over the last week and gave him their best wishes in his return to full health.

The Eagles coach will continue his recuperation at home – no date is set for his return to club duties as yet.

Eagles go into a tough double header weekend starting at home versus Cheshire Jets this Friday night and assistant coach Dave Forrester will continue at the helm.
