After a sixteen year career battling on the rugby pitches of The Celtic league, English Premiership and French Top 14 Championship, injury forced his hand and he made the tough decision to retire.

In April 2016 Damian completed the 257km Marathon des Sables in the Moroccan Sahara, fulfilling a dream of some 12 years but his next adventure will no doubt prove to be his toughest yet as he takes on the might of the Atlantic ocean in the 4800km Talisker Atlantic Challenge a annual ocean rowing event.
