Normally, when players are late to training, they are lambasted for it, and sometimes even fined or suspended for games. In this case however, the excuse was worthy of being late.

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.”
