In a post to Instagram, James announced he will be leaving the Royal Pirates due to being told he would need a sixth surgery on his maimed wrist and that he also has a blood clot in his brain.
Back in June of 2015, he suffered a tragic accident that essentially severed his left hand. Despite the fact that amputation appears to be what the doctors advised, he made a valiant attempt at recovery and went through five surgeries in order to regain further use of his hand. Everybody has their limits, however, and understandably James has chosen to move on after a 19-month battle.
Dude had his rising and promising career completely trashed by being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Just terrible.
