    Doesn't look good for Hughes.
    Looked away from the stream for a moment, put it back on and Hughes is on the deck, helmet off, clutching his face with Blues players all around him calling for help/medics

    Stretcher out.

    The thing that concerns me is he was on his feet for several seconds before collapsing. Being knocked out suddenly just from the impact would be less worrying.

    Yep, never anything personal against Hughes, he's a nice enough fella.
    Really hoping he's ok and young Abbott and the rest of the guys who saw it are ok too.
