"[I have] a lot more movement in my right arm and a lot of movement in my left arm," McKinnon said. "It’s just a matter of time that hopefully I get a bit more movement in my legs. I’ve got a great sensational feeling through my legs. [There are] a lot of positive signs."

Positive news for Alex McKinnon, really pleased for the lad.  Lets hope he gets the use of his legs back as well.  Fingers crossed for him.


"Rugby League is rugby in the simplest form in the sense that it's about great defence, great tackling technique, good handling, good passing, catching and great kicking."

Alex has been offered a job for life by the NRL. Ideas are being pulled together and developed to raise money. Much will be needed to pay for the treatment he will need. A telethon has been proposed. His family and Knights are being involved in matters.
