Alright lads, abit of a background. I've wanted to be a marine all my life but about 2 years ago I underwent surgery on my knee. I had key hole surgery to trim down some damaged cartilage and to assess the damage to what they thought was a torn ACL. It turned out the the ACL had a very minor strain on it and they told me that it is now completley fine and that no surgery is required. I kind of gave up on the thought that I would be able to pass the medical due to having my cartilage trimmed and just focused on my rugby. However over the past 2 years all I can think to myself is "what if they pass me?" I'm currently weighing in at about 96kg. I'm not really fat, but I've been focusing on putting on mass over the past 2 years for rugby. I'm currently quite fit but I really think that my weight would kill me during any long distance training I had to do. So basically, my question is, if I was to pass my medical, would I be able to delay my application while I focused on loosing abit of my weight and getting fitter? A simple answer would be to loose the weight before my medical, but if they was to fail me on the medical I would want to continue my rugby, so I would of basically got rid of 2 years of work for nothing. Cheers!
