Perhaps this is going to be a slow process, it certainly seems that way. I'm trying my best to fill that void and find that meaning in my life and I hope that what I am trying to create with the interests I have off field form together to fill that void.

Just like that, Tom May, London Welsh captain became Tom May former rugby player. So what now?
