Former Wigan Warriors and Wakefield Trinity star Bill Ashurst has left hospital.
The former utility man had been admitted into hospital following a stomach issue, with his daughter asking for people to send their well-wishes over Facebook.
However, over the weekend, Ashurst himself posted on Facebook, stating: “Thank you to all my friends and family for all your best wishes and prayers. After many tests for a tummy bleed, I can go home today.
“If not I must carry this tribulation called hospital food, wow give me Jim Mills anytime.
“Anyway, I am in high spirits and hope to be back in the company of friends soon.”
