Read the passage carefully. Then choose the correct answer.
 
Mike was the school rugby captain. He had been playing the sport since he was seven. He loved the excitement of it and thrived on the adrenalin rush he got out of it. There was a strong sense of camaraderie among the team members. He trained hard with his team twice a week. If there was a rugby match approaching, they would increase their training to three times a week.

Last Friday, Mike had a rugby match. They were playing against another school. The atmosphere was very intense as the two schools were neck to neck in the match. Students from both sides were cheering loudly for their own schools. The excitement in the stadium was electrifying as the players raced against the clock. At one point in the match, Mike had the ball in his hands. He dashed towards the goal with only one thing in mind -- to score. Just as he was about to reach the end, an opponent came out of nowhere and tackled him. The sudden impact caused Mike to collapse onto the ground with a loud thud. Then, an ear-piercing scream left Mike's lips. The stadium hushed. Immediately, Mike's coach rushed out onto the field to check on him. It turned out that Mike had fractured his leg rather badly. He was immediately sent to the hospital for an X-ray.

The doctor at the hospital gave Mike a thorough examination and discovered that Mike indeed had a fracture. In fact, the fracture was a rather deep one. The doctor suggested that Mike undergo an operation to insert a metal rod into his leg so that his bone would heal nicely.

After Mike had his operation, he had to go for physiotherapy to help speed up the recuperation process. However, when not in physiotherapy, Mike had to move around in a wheelchair so as not to aggravate his would. Although the surgery was a success, his leg was still in a fragile state. The doctor also instructed Mike to stay off rugby for at least three months. at the end of the three months, the doctor would review his condition to see if he was fit enough to resume the sport. Although mike was rather upset to hear this, he knew he had to listen to the doctor. Otherwise, he might end up worsening his condition and never play rugby again, which was even more devastating for him.

It was not easy for Mike to sit around while watching his teammates practice but he cheered them on nevertheless. After all, he was till the team captain.
