What happened to no train no play. Can imagine the young kids that have been flogged in training so far this year, might not be quite as enthusiastic when they’re asked to do another lap on the captain’s run. 

He's done one training session.

The joke originally in the post seems in bad taste following Hardaker's seizure.

That’s some clutching of straws you’re doing.

First article - players should be grateful for second chances. Hardaker must be on about his third or fourth chance (homophobia, attacking a student, drugs, driving ban). It’s understandable some would be annoyed that Hardaker has had so many chances now and unwilling to continue supporting him.

Second article - man says teammate is a good player.

I'm not sure the relevance of either of those to be honest. How many chances has Hardaker had? He is certainly way past his second like in that first article. The second is simply Wilkin looking forward to Barba joining.

I'm not really sure either of these makes Wilkin's comments less valid. Two wrongs don't make a right either.

As I said, I don't disagree with Wilkin particularly, but he was supportive of Barba who has just as bad a rep sheet as Hardaker. Hope he doesn't ask for consistency from the refs!

Wilkin has a real blind spot when it comes to Leeds, he clearly has never got over them beating Saints in all those finals - he never has or has had a good word to say about Leeds.

Anyway, hope Zak is OK as seizures can be really terrifying for all involved, hope he's OK and recovers well.

In the middle of all our current troubles few things can raise a smile like Jon Wilkin being so haunted by those Grand Final losse that the merest mention of Leeds drives him over the edge.

To be fair Wilkin seems to get awfully personal about a lot of teams and players. Its not good trait in a pundit.

We're shocked he gets riled up easily when he was upset about cameras in dressing rooms?

Yes indeed. This could be career-ending, sadly, depending on diagnosis, treatment, insurance etc. 

I'm interested in that drive, that rush to judgment, that is so prevalent in our society. We all know that pleasurable rush that comes from condemning, and in the short term it's quite a satisfying thing to do, isn't it?

Wilkin even complained that it wasnt right that he could hear the Leeds players celebrating in their own dressing room

He might not have a good word to say about Leeds but he's always PLENTY TO SAY!

Back on topic

As much as Hardaker has pushed the limits of patience of the teams he has played for and been given "second" chances I hope this is not too serious as to end his career and isn't caused by any bad judgment on his part.

This country isn't that blessed with truly great RL talents (compared to say Aus), the one's we do have we should really look after, even if they can't look after themselves.

What are the possible causes of this seizure? Excuse my medical ignorance. 

How long is a piece of string?

I had an unexplained seizure about 25 years ago. Completely blacked out and came to in a hospital. Friends had to tell me what had happened because I had no memory at all. It remains unexplained despite subsequent scans and assessments. The rule, at the time, was that I couldn't drive for a year and that if it went for a (I now can't remember the amount of time) bit longer then I wouldn't have to declare it on any medical questionnaires.

There's been no recurrence. I was told by a consultant at the time that anyone can have one and it be essentially nothing unless and until it happens again when it *might* be something.

It depends what they are calling a seizure 'a fit' as in the common parlance could epilepsy, if its just 'passing out' a sudden drop in blood pressure could be a cause, but in both cases there can be many other causes.
