I'm unable to post the link but apparently former Ipswich Jet and East Tiger player Michael Purcell has passed away. A really good second tier outside back during his prime.
Yep, up on the CM site now. A car accident today.

Link there.
Awful news


"Queensland Cup standout Michael Purcell died on Sunday following a car crash in Brisbane, aged 28."

“I am shattered, it’s so, so sad,” said Ben Walker, Purcell’s former coach at the Ipswich Jets in the Queensland Cup. “He was a really talented kid who definitely had the ability to play NRL.

“We got a tip about this kid playing reserve grade and his nickname was the ‘Kangaroo Catcher’ because the story went he was so fast he once chased down a kangaroo during a cross-country run in the bush. “We signed him to the Ipswich Jets and he ended up scoring 66 tries in 71 games. He had incredible speed.

“Michael ended up moving to the Easts Tigers because the Melbourne Storm had signed him, so he played for their feeder team in the Queensland Cup. “Michael was a really beautifully-natured guy, a very polite kid, well mannered but with a cheeky side.

“All our gang are pretty tight at Ipswich and his former teammates are really upset about his passing. “He was a pleasure to coach. We all loved him at the Jets, he will be dearly missed.”

Mozer getting scans today to assess damage- with three games to go I would say he's done for 22.

Maybe they can find another Keary.

Or Walker. Politis went to IGS too.

Fact is no NRL clubs wants Ipswich that’s a massive league area left to no one at the moment.

IGS and ISHS are producing players and Roosters want in.

Wonderful. Looking forward to the Broncos working with the Panthers NSW Cup team in the future..

I think Wayne has that avenue already locked up with the Dolphins.

Kelly chips for Tesi, Tesi in the clear can't handle the bounce, Fuller runs 70m untouched to score.

Oh Souths.
