    A loss of a different kind

    A humble Jaryd Campbell only spoke a few words but it was enough to put things into perspective.

    Standing inside the Sea Eagles dressing room at Suncorp Stadium last night, Jaryd said ‘I can’t thank the Manly club and you blokes for what you have done for my family. We will never forget this. Manly forever’

    With that, the mood changed. Here they were, the Sea Eagles players – some still in playing gear – realising a heavy loss on the footy field was just that – sure it hurt badly, but it was a game of rugby league.

    The man they were embracing had only a few weeks back walked into a church carrying the coffin of his little boy, Roman, who tragically died in a house fire in a Beenleigh house they were renting. It happened on Roman’s second birthday.

    A great read & good work by those who arranged this.
    remember, it's only a game after all.

    Gives you cold shivers, huh. The thought of losing a loved one is super tragic..but wow, a child...can you actually ever recover?

    Don't honestly think I'm man enough to..straight up.
