Jarryd's Back!

Postby swannee » Fri Dec 09, 2016 12:48 pm

Delighted to hear that Jarryd Roughead has been given the "all-clear" after his recent melanoma.
Of course any such pronouncement must be ultimately be tempered with some caution, ..... secondary melanoma once it has metastasized is always difficult to fully eradicate.
The poor bloke will have been through hell with extensive chemotherapy or some such, which is certainly no picnic.
Best wishes Jarryd for the continuation of your great career.

There was talk in a radio interview of how he would deal with any on-field sledging regarding his cancer.
Surely no player would stoop so low as to use such a serious life-threatening medical condition in such a way?
I tried being "normal" once......worst two minutes of my life!!!

Good that he is back. I'm not sure that a sledge about a cancer you beat is much of a sledge.
