I'm a QLD'er, but I like Boyd Cordner.
He's certainly had his fair share of bad luck, but at the age of 28 he's reportedly being urged to consider missing upwards of 6-12 months following the latest head knock during last Wednesday's origin opener.
As a result, Cordner will miss the remainder of the series, that's despite of course, re-entering the game after being cleared to go back on.
The really worrying thing is the nature of the head knock, seemed pretty mild didn't it?
He gets his head in awkward position but the impact doesn't seem like much? That's big cause for concern right there.
I have no doubt he met all the protocols and every precaution was taken, but how the heck did he get back on the field?
That said, I am no doctor.
There's plenty of experts out there calling for Cordner to call time on his career. Not that it really matters, but he's still got 3 years left on his current contract worth $750,000 a year.
Remember just a couple of months ago, Cordner lost his cousin as a result of a head knock in a local game of club rugby league. That'd naturally be weighing fairly heavily on his mind.
Trent Robinson suggested that Cordner and the club will naturally get all the necessary tests done and assess things early next year. Seems the logical thing to do.
The priority is of course his health, let's hope it all works out for the best.
What would you do if you were Boyd Cordner?
