Sims reveals how dark life got after breaking his leg for the first time

St George Illawarra forward Tariq Sims has revealed how bad life got after breaking his leg for the first time.

Sims has had a horrendous run with injury but says his weight ballooned out of control after the first break whilst playing at North Queensland Cowboys.

“I got up to 135kg. I didn’t leave the house for 6 weeks,” Sims told The Locker Room podcast.

“I had a lot of issues the first time I broke my leg.”

Sims left Newcastle Knights midway through 2016 to join the Dragons.

The Gerringong junior is in a tussle with Tyson Frizzell, Joel Thompson, Jack de Belin, Jacob Host and Will Matthews for a starting back row spot in 2017.
