The 33-year-old hasn't played since 2017 when injury put paid to his debut season with England's Salford, following his 14-year tenure with the Warriors.

He had his debut boxing fight in December - which he won via knockout against Dave Letele - but was later advised to hang up his gloves for good as a result of the cyst.

"[There were] no symptoms, no nothing ... everyone had to do a [brain] scan before the fight and they found it then and tried to rule me out of the fight, but I went on with it and came out good.

"I had some fights lined up which were cancelled because of that."

Vatuvei has been in camp with Mate Ma'a Tonga this week ahead of their test against the Kiwis on Saturday, and still holds out some cautious optimism that he may eventually be able to make a return to the field.

"[Tonga camp] was a good opportunity for myself to come in and get amongst the boys again and get that feeling again. It's hard, but I'm just enjoying it at the moment," Vatuvei said.

"There's always a goal that I want to come back to the game. It all depends, I've still got some medical things that I've got to look at. Right now my mind and my heart is telling me I can still play but my body is saying no, so it's a constant battle at the moment."

Yet more than 20 years since his suicide, Hutchence had become pop culture shorthand. For louche, mercurial rock star oozing with sex appeal; drug abuser and home wrecker hounded by the tabloid press; a misunderstood death that crossed into the realm of urban legend to land as the butt of jokes.
