Lynagh on the mend

FORMER Queensland Reds and Wallabies captain Michael Lynagh is on the mend after suffering a stroke last month.

His former Wallaby teammate and close friend Andrew Slack said Lynagh may even 'rear his head' outside of the Royal Brisbane Women's Hospital within the next couple of days.

"Michael is making really good progress," Slack, who visited Lynagh on Sunday, said yesterday.

"He's talking and walking. It's his vision that remains a problem.

"Saying that, he'll hopefully be out of hospital within the next 48 hours or so."

Lynagh, who played 72 Tests in the green and gold and 100 games for Queensland, was visiting Brisbane from his home in England when he was taken ill.

Slack said Lynagh wouldn't be heading home anytime soon.

"He'll stay in Brisbane for some rehabilitation before any thought of flying is talked about," Slack said.
