    Sad news that an English premier league soccer player collapsed on the field with a heart attack and was taken to hospital in a bad way. The match was called off. I imagine his teammates were too upset to continue.

    Do you think, in similar tragic circumstances, they would call off a NRL match? Are there any regulations covering such an event? Would they replay the match or split the points?

    I know such an event is much more important than a football match, but my mind went back to Wolfie being carried off with suspected spinal injuries, and there was no suggestion that the match would be called off.

    Long bow I think.....if it was this serious, and I hope it never is, they would all walk off.....

        George Rose would be prime candidate if such a thing were to happen.

        The player in question was not breathing for almost 10 minutes

        Wolfie was serious but no where as serious as someone collapsing and nt breathing

        You would think they have to cancel the game

        From seeing how the players reacted, I think the right decision was made on Sat night. They have even postponed the Bolton EPL match due for Tuesday due to the mental state of the team.

        It was a shame, hopefully this lifts the Bolton guys to go all the way and win the FA Cup.

        Its happened at junior level in Union a couple of times.

        I actually met someone once who tackled a player at high school and the boy died. This person never got over it, even though it was a congenital heart condition that was undiagnosed in the teenager.

        Just goes to show - live life to the fullest, because you don't the when the fulltime whistle will blow :angel:

        Very touching to see the impact on all of the Supporters at the soccer match - they all felt the poignancy of the moment.

          It’s not the first time that it has happened in the EPL and some of the other major European Football Leagues. Not a nice thing to see and hopefully we have as equally great medical response at all our grounds.
