Had my boy go into a seizure from a flu fever when he was about 1. We were half an hour from anywhere on 100km roads. Fucking scary. Eyes rolled back…
Shit that's rough. Febrile convulsions, hopefully he grew out of them and has no further issue. Interestingly they usually run in the family, you or your partner may have had them also as a child.

Just as an aside. Will the NRL ask the players to refrain from spitting large mouthfuls of spit during matches? It's a terrible look on TV and not the best modelling for our kids in this present climate.
How do other sports handle it? Tennis for instance is more restrained, but the do have a lot of access to their bench between games. Cricket, carry a handkerchief. NBA, access to bench and short bursts of game time.

He only had the one thankfully… I was on my own, his mum was working in Brisbane. Happened at dusk and there was a crazy range to negotiate full of wildlife. Luckily he came back quick. Terrifying. I had taken a Valium due to my back, so driving was a sketchy idea while holding a seizing baby.

I've never paid that much attention to other sports to be honest. I know in soccer there is a lot of it too.

I have to spit when running. Fairly regularly.

I should add that I didn’t drive, only because he came back within a minute.

Edit: it’s amazing how many variables/procedures/opportunities/risks you can process in a minute

Oates:

“The world’s changed quickly and we’ve got to adapt now. I love the NFL and have been watching a fair bit of that. They’ve had to adapt really well to it. They test every day, players are in and out, games are moved. It’s about adapting. We’ve done it well the last few years. It’s another hurdle to get over. We’ve got to work with the governments with the rules and do what we can to keep our game going and everyone safe."

“Last year everyone thought it was getting better and then we’ve just been smacked with another variant. It’s just all about adapting. Whatever the NRL decides to do, we’ve got to deal with it and move on. Everyone is dealing with the same thing. We aren’t special people with special treatment.”

“It’s pretty lucky our halves combinations are still together. The blokes that have come in have jelled really well. They fit in straight away."

“It is unfortunate this has happened and we’ve got a couple out, but they’ve adapted well to the way we play. We could lose a half here and there but we’ve got to deal with it. There’s not much we can do. If we stick to the same structures and way the coaches want to play, it shouldn’t matter a lot.”
