Demetri Catrakilis has remained in hospital after it was confirmed he sustained a bone fracture in his throat. 

The Harlequins flyhalf took a shoulder to the throat from an opponent during their match against coach Johan Ackermann’s Gloucester. Catrakilis stopped breathing for several seconds and was placed on an oxygen mask before being rushed to hospital.

Harlequins have since released an update on the 28-year-old’s condition, confirming Catrakilis sustained a fracture to a bone in this throat.

‘Demetri Catrakilis remains in hospital after sustaining a small fracture to a bone in his throat during the match against Gloucester. He does not require surgery. We will provide a further update when available,’ read Quinns’ statement.
