This clip raises more questions and answers none at all. The main question is of course related to what Trott is implying is a 'mental illness'. Some people don't accept that and if what Trott wants us to believe is true the question arises, 'so when did this debilitating illness manifest itself to the point that you had to leave the tour? What it only after being worked over by a resurgent MJ that it suddenly became impossible to carry on? And further, was no one in your camp, fellow players, team doctor, coach, not aware of the seriousness of the situation such that you were one mauling away from a breakdown?

Good on ya Trott for getting back up and into the ring again. More courage to you sir.
