“I was in hospital for two nights at the start of the week and it definitely felt like that took a toll on my body.

“I feel like it’s something I’ve got to get through, probably a mental thing.

“My liver was a bit swollen, it had some fluid around it,” he added.

“It was an infection they said, so I was in hospital on Saturday and Sunday, got out Monday morning.”

While the 19-year-old elected to push through the pain he admitted that it had an impact on his performance.

“I lost 4kgs and you could see out there I was cramping for about 30 minutes in the second half, I just couldn’t find my legs,” he said.

“But it’s a mental thing I guess, I’ve just got to push through things like that.”
