Danny Hodgson back in induced coma as condition takes turn for the worse, mother says

  Danny Hodgson back in induced coma as condition takes turn for the worse, mother says The mother of a Perth soccer player critically injured in an apparently random assault last month says his condition has worsened. Danny Hodgson, a talented player for ECU Joondalup Soccer Club, was with teammates near the Perth Train Station a month ago when he was attacked.He has been in Royal Perth Hospital's intensive care unit ever since.In an update posted to Facebook, his mother Nicola Hodgson said her son had gone "drastically downhill"."From last week with Danny making so much progress and us having the most amazing days with him, he then took a turn for the worst on Friday," she wrote.

Now Hodgson is fit once more and amid the growing trend of deploying an extra ballplayer in the middle, how does Ricky Stuart fit them all in? While it may only be for a short spell here and there, there’s every chance the Raiders could operate with an extra ballplayer in the middle at times in 2021. “It’s a good option for the boss to have, if that’s going to be better for the team if I do a few minutes there.” Hodgson will be joined in the NRL this season by his nephew, Bailey Hodgson , an 18-year-old fullback who has signed with Newcastle. Another British import Dom Young has also landed

Las Vegas Raiders head coach Jon Gruden speaks on his headset during the first half of an NFL football game against the Chicago Bears, Sunday, Oct. 10, 2021, in Las Vegas. He resigned after emails he sent before being re-hired in 2018 were found to contain racist, homophobic and misogynistic comments. Raiders defensive end Carl Nassib came out as gay in June and is the first openly gay player to appear in an NFL game. 'I learned a long time ago what makes a man different is what makes him great,' Gruden told ESPN when Nassib came out.

Josh Hodgson's days at Canberra appear numbered with talks underway to move the former Raiders captain to Wests Tigers.

Hodgson is contracted with the Raiders until the end of next season, but has repeatedly been linked with a move away from the club.

The latest of those is at the Tigers, where AAP understand there have been talks about a move for as soon as 2022.

Hodgson would be an ideal option for the Tigers, who have the solid Jacob Liddle at No.9.

Jake Simpkins is the other hooker on the Tigers' roster, but he is aged just 19 and is still some time from reaching his best.

Tigers head of football Hartigan goes

  Tigers head of football Hartigan goes Wests Tigers have parted ways with their head of football Adam Hartigan, making him the first man to go as part of Tim Sheens' revamp of the NRL club.Hartigan and the Tigers are believed to have parted ways after days of speculation around his future and the increased role Sheens will play.

Finally came across a derelict freighter, but I can’t land on it. I see no markers or indicators, even if I scan. I spent an embarrassing amount of time trying to land in a "derelict freighter" before googling. Partially it was because my partner had just done it, made it sound super straightforward, which only furthered the feelings of frustration. But, so far all but one "derelict freighter" I've come across have actually been wrecks.

The BBC Springwatch presenter - an avid environmentalist and animal rights campaigner - was targeted on Friday night by balaclava-clad thugs who torched a Land Rover outside his home. Mr Packham had earlier revealed how the balaclava-clad thugs had driven the Land Rover to his remote country home and set fire to it, before fleeing in a get-away vehicle. He said the car was engulfed in an inferno before exploding shortly after. In a video, the presenter raised the prospect of his opponents one day killing him.

Both players swapped between the starting role at different points this season.

The Tigers still have three spots on their roster for next year after signing Tyrone Peachey last week, with more than $1 million in salary cap space available.

Hodgson started in all but one game this year for the Raiders, but Tom Starling is seen as the natural successor to his throne at hooker.

After being one of the key driving forces behind their grand final run in 2019, Hodgson relinquished the captaincy this season.

He was also critical of the club's handling of George Williams' exit, which turned ugly on the half's demands that he was able to return to the UK.

If Hodgson was to push to move north, a deal would still need to be brokered by the two clubs on how much of Hodgson's salary the Raiders would need to cover next season.

That could still remain a sticking point, with Hodgson on a considerable deal for 2022 that would still need to be honoured between the two teams.
