As they were making their way to training, Manly players Joe Galuvao and Tim Robinson, they saw a middle-aged woman who had collapsed and cut her head open in Dee Why.
As a result, the players were both late to training, but coach Des Hasler was pleased with the players kind-hearted spirit to help the woman.
“While several teammates created headlines for doing something stupid, they have reminded everyone what they are really like.”
Galuvao, who had just gotten off a train and bus from Penrith – a trip that he partakes in every day for Manly training – he found himself in the life-threatening situation with the woman.
“I told Timmy exactly where I was and to come quick,” Galuvao said.
“The woman was unconscious and having an obvious seizure.
“She had obviously been for a swim and had a towel wrapped around her, which I used to help stem the flow of blood.”
