After Newcastle’s #RiseForAlex and emotional win over Cronulla yesterday, the worse possible news will see Alex McKinnon become a quadriplegic.
This is heartbreaking news not only for Alex and his family, his club and his team mates; but Knights fans and the wider rugby league community.
We ask you to consider posting a tribute to Alex here and to read a great article from coach Wayne Bennett published in yesterday’s Daily Telegraph.
Let’s hope that something can be done to ensure Alex’s medical expenses right now and into the future are secured.
Everything else falls into insignificance after hearing this dreadful news.
Alex McKinnon, you have the support of all of rugby league.
