This special effort to support Alex McKinnon following his spinal injury is well worth supporting.

It has been heartwarming to see how the game in Oz, clubs, players and fans have all pitched in to support Alex.


His own club has naturally been a focus for his support.

The NRL are very active in their support too, dedicating Round 19 (this weekend) to Alex.

The Footy Show on Thursday night was excellent.

The interviews with Wayne Bennett and especially Korbin Simms, about their emotions whilst dealing with the aftermath of Alex's injuries brought tears to my eyes.

I hope the money raised will give Alex the best possible chance to aid his recovery.

"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."

I wonder if any of the wristbands have made their way to the UK? It would be nice to buy one.
