Brett Seymour in hospital after car crash
Hull’s Australian scrum-half Brett Seymour has been hospitalised following a car crash, his Super League club said Monday.
“The only information we have is that he has been involved in a traffic accident and he’s in hospital,” media manager Matt Holden said.
British media reported Seymour’s injuries were not thought to be life-threatening.
The 28-year-old joined the club from New Zealand Warriors last year and played in Saturday’s 36-16 loss at Widnes.
Seymour joined Hull on a three year contract following a string of disciplinary actions which saw him bounce from club to club in the Australian NRL competition.
The former Australian schoolboy international played over 100 games in the NRL for Brisbane, Cronulla and the New Zealand Warriors.
His career was plagued by alcohol related offenses that saw him dumped by both Brisbane and Cronulla before being offered a lifeline by the Warriors.
The incident behind Seymour’s dumping from the Brisbane Broncos which involved him headbutting a woman in a nightclub was well documented by the Australian media.
Before leaving the New Zealand Warriors the troubled player was caught by police drink driving and blew an alcohol reading 2.5 times the legal limit.
He was fined and disqualified from driving for seven months following the incident.
