How the Canberra Raiders saved this man's life

'Saved my life to be honest': Canberra Raiders stars' heroic golf-course rescue

Gold Creek greenskeeper Nathan Bell was desperately crying for help. Trapped under a tractor. Six broken ribs, a broken arm - in 12 places - broken leg, dislocated hip. Rapana, Papalii, Leilua and Paulo then intervened.

"I was getting ready for my putt ... and I could hear someone yelling out at me," Jordan Rapana said. "I ran over and realised it was a big three-tonne, ride-on lawnmower that's flipped itself upside down. It was huge. And this guy's stuck underneath it."

Rapa is a dead set legend, on and especially off the the field. We are blessed to have him back at this great club.

I reckon Papa would have been doing the grunt work, Leilua was helping, but a few brain fades delayed the rescue. Paulo had a crack but went back to playing golf just before they finished the rescue. Rapana got in and helped finish off Papa’s effort.

Blake Austin was also there, but didn’t offer much help. Just insisted on sidestepping the mower when he was asked to help.

Pay walled, found out more about erectile dysfunction pills than what happened by following the link.
Gina Riley: Oh, come on, John. That’s a bit old hat, the corrupt IOC delegate.
John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

I learnt that Canberra Times are advertising them. So more than I did about the story.

Mercury, stories detailing your own erectile dysfunction issues are generally moderated on this site. Rookie error.

I learnt that the hard way. Pun possibly intended.

I find watching the '89 GF helps gerg, but then you've got the opposite issue with the whole 4 hours thing.

Well it is fairly obvious that the old crop of regulars should be put out to pasture for the new breed, like you and whatshisname.
