    I'm sure many of you have read about this accident over the last few days:


    A rugby league player seriously injured in a tackle during a Queensland Cup match on Saturday has died in hospital.


    Sunshine Coast Falcons player James Ackerman, 24, was knocked unconscious early in the first half of the Falcons versus Norths Devils game on Saturday afternoon at Bishop Park, Nundah.

    Ackerman, a father of two young children,was treated on the field for 40 minutes before being taken to the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital.

    So young, and very sad for his family. My condolences to the family in this tragic time.

    Yeah I heard this on the radio. Poor kid: Hope the QRL get behind his family and team, as well as the opposition players involved.

    Very tough situation :(

    Tragic. I'm sure the Men Of League foundation will support his family. Great organisation of which all Rugby League fans should become a member.

    Agreed all the best to his family and friends in this trying time.

    May they gather strength and solace from each other and remember the good times this young guy brought into their lives.

    My prayers are with you all. It would be heart breaking.

    Can't remember a worst time for this sort of stuff. Puts all the worries about wooden spoons, contracts, club management etc right down the bottom of the heap where it belongs..

    Horrible news, my thoughts are with his family, friends and team mates. I also hope the players involved in the tackle get the help and support necessary as it would also be a terrible time for them. Great touch at the roosters and dragons game tonight.

    One of the reasons I hate hearing fans refer to players by demeaning terms such as 'pea-heart' is that it is such a tough game, particularly at senior level.

    As for this tragic outcome, it seems there will be more to the story in the coming months.

    http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-06-23/james-ackerman-death-francis-molo-referred-to-tribunal/6567306
    Queensland Rugby League (QRL) has referred a 20-year-old player to the judiciary over a tackle that tragically ended the life of 25-year-old James Ackerman.
    In a statement, QRL said its Match Review Committee followed its standard weekly process last night by reviewing the weekend's Intrust Super Cup matches.
    "An incident involving Norths Devils player Francis Molo has been referred to the Judiciary at a date to be confirmed," the statement said.
    The QRL has not provided any details of the charge Molo faces.



    http://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/que...iciary-hearing-postponed-20150623-ghvd12.html
    A judiciary decision on the tackle that injured James Ackerman on Saturday has been delayed indefinitely.
    The Queensland Rugby League released its decision on the tackle involving Francis Molo and James Ackerman in the match between Norths and Sunshine Coast.
