Wests helped me rediscover my love of the game, says young gun Tizzano

By MARK CASHMAN

Waratahs and West Harbour flanker Carl Tizzano has copped the sharp end of Sydney’s COVID-19 lockdown and he’s longing to get back on the field.

The 21-year-old only emerged from 14 days of self isolation on Thursday after he visited a contact site at a Services NSW office to sort out his bike registration near his home at Kingsford.

And from there it’s at least another two weeks of the Sydney wide lockdown before life and the rugby gets back to anything near what we would call normal.

“I was only in there for something like four minutes but I suppose it is what it is,” Tizzano told Rugby News as he ticked off the hours to “freedom”.

“The Tahs dropped me off a ‘care package’ with some weights and a few other bits and pieces and they have been checking in every so often.

“But after the season that we had at the Tahs I just want to get out there and play some footy with the boys at Wests.”
