Corey Harawira-Naera discharged from hospital, thanks public for support



Raiders forward Corey Harawira-Naera has expressed his gratitude for the support he has received following a serious incident against South Sydney on Saturday night.

Harawira-Naera took a regulation run before falling to the ground shortly after and suffering a seizure. He was treated by medical staff from both the Raiders and Rabbitohs before being taken to hospital for further examination.

‘Not in the clear yet’: Raiders forward Corey Harawira-Naera provides update after health scare





Raiders forward Corey Harawira-Naera has provided an update on his health after Saturday evening’s “awful” scare at Stadium Australia.

“Love to you all for thinking of me. I’m back on the mend, not in the clear yet, but we’ll get some more scans and sort it all out,” he said. “Health comes first, but I’m obviously hoping to get back on the field as soon as possible. Love to all, and I’m very fortunate to have a lot of people concerned about me and thinking about me.”

Canberra Raider Corey Harawira-Naera sends message to fans after mid-game seizure





In a positive sign, Canberra Raiders star Corey Harawira-Naera is out of hospital and will travel back to the capital today. Harawira-Naera was discharged from Westmead Hospital about 3.30am. He's had scans, but it's still unclear what caused his seizure last night. The 28-year-old had a virus going into the game, but whether that played a part in his collapse was also unclear. Harawira-Naera will see a neurologist on Monday or Tuesday.

Glad he sounds well there and feels supported.

I'll trust the club and CHN to understand all the necessary scans and tests to understand what even happened before they think about footy again.

Was it an underlying unrelated issue or was there an in game thing we didn't see on coverage? I guess that's the big question.

I've had a look at the run before he went down and it appears as though he face plants it. I reckon that was the cause. To his credit he jumped straight up to play the ball quickly but he looked ginger afterwards and stayed out of the play until he went down

He was playing outside Hoppa on the wing when Hoppa scored was he not right early in or was that part of the reshuffle?

I was curious about that too, went back and looked at it
It was off the back of the Papalii/Hors/Tapine almost try, chn had taken the hit up prior and broken some tackles and ended up near the middle

As that sequence unfolded looked like he was trailing the play, when when Tapine got tackle without scoring, everyone realised quickly it was about 3 on 6 out wide, it was a simple catch and pass situation, and we don’t get a great view of it but it looked to me like he simply wrapped around Hoppa to provide an extra draw and pass number

Don’t think that was anything more than circumstances of that specific play

As I mentioned on Twitter my 16yo daughter had a seizure about 8 months ago out of nowhere.

She was diagnosed with epilepsy and we thought ok let's deal with that then but subsequent diagnosis has resulted in her officially having MS as well.

The seizure is considered the first indicator.

On a positive note at least getting it young and with no other symptoms she is now on monthly medication for the MS (an infusion in hospital) and daily pills for the epilepsy.

Wouldn't wish it on anyone and hopefully CHN's outcome will be less "permanent".

All the best mate.

I've had a very close experience with MS in the family. Over 20 years on now and things are going well, with basically no progression. Such a terrible condition to be confronted with, especially at such a young age.

Thankfully the treatments have improved markedly in the past 30 years and there are obviously a few options to pursue now (low saturated fat diet is a winner). I hope your daughter is doing well. Things like that certainly puts everything else in life in perspective.

Hope all is ok. Stay healthy, stay positive, stay active, live life...and kick its ass.

Corey Harawira-Naera goes for more tests after heart condition ruled out

Corey Harawira-Naera will be sent for more tests in the coming days in an attempt to clarify why he had a seizure on the field, but the good news is Canberra Raiders medical staff have all but ruled out a heart condition as the reason.

In an update that has come somewhat as relief to Raiders players and staff, an investigation of incidents during the game points to head trauma as the most likely reason behind Harawira-Naera's scary episode.

Compared to heart issues, epilepsy, or MS, yes.

100% and unless there’s more to the statement then quoted being relieved is a from cry from saying it’s a positive.

Corey Harawira-Naera out for at least a month while awaiting diagnosis

Corey Harawira-Naera is expected to miss at least a month as he awaits specialist diagnosis after suffering an on-field seizure at the weekend, with doctors now able to pinpoint a build-up of “smaller head knocks” that may have contributed.

“What they’ve found is two or three incidents leading up to it,” CEO Don Furner said. “He did go head first into the turf, even though it didn’t look that bad, almost innocuous. The set before, he made a tackle and copped a head knock as well. A couple of smaller knocks in a row, they think might have been a contributing factor to Corey’s seizure.”

Hey sorry to hear about your daughter but at least they caught it early. I've got MS myself and likely did from the age of 21 but wasn't diagnosed until 40, luckily never had a seizure though. Since I've been on the medication for it I haven't had any big flare ups. The modern medication really is amazingly good. I control of 90% of my left ankle in 2013 (which was misdiagnosed as a spine injury) and then lost 80% control of my right in 2020, which was after my diagnosis but before I was on medication as I was still awaiting test (thanks covid). Even for me though as long as I'm medicated I should be able to avoid additional damage and loss of functionality.

Other than that it's just bouts of fatigue you have to deal with. Ocrevus and similar meds are also good at reducing risks of accelerated brain atrophy. There has also been some recent developments in research which is pointing to them now understanding the root cause of MS and hence a chance for a cure within our lifetimes at least.

Anyway back on topic glad CHN is well, will be interesting to see if the neurologist finds anything else.

Sorry to hear h89. No doubt she's lucky to have you in her corner.

I'd certainly be inclined to go the ultra cautious route with CHN. A minimum of 6 weeks out of contact you'd think is prudent...

I think in this stuff you let the doctors guide you completely
If the doc's say he's right to play in a month and have given him the all clear, then there is no reason to ignore that advice and sit him for an extra 2 weeks for no medical reason.
Conversely if they say he shouldn't play until they have all the answers and that'll take 4-6 months of testing and what not, then so be it.

Yup agree - not a place for us to be the armchair experts :roflmao

I'd tend to layer a bit of caution on top of the doctor's recommendations when it comes to things as serious as this.

Kinda related. Last month the doctors cleared Damar Hamlin for a return to the NFL after suffering cardiac arrest on the field. I fully expected it to be career over for him.

Great to hear - that was a terrible incident. Have to admire his courage if he does get back on the pitch and rips in as he did pre-incident.

Always amazed how Rapa out his skull fracture and head gash earlier this year behind him so easily.

Corey Harawira-Naera out for 4-6 weeks after on field collapse

Corey Harawira-Naera's will miss at least 4-6 weeks following his seizure on the field, with the Canberra Raiders star back in Sydney for further testing on Tuesday.

The medical thinking around what caused him to collapse with 14 minutes remaining in the 33-26 win over South Sydney on Saturday was shifting towards being concussion related. The other possibility is a virus.

That’s because Rapana is a mad ****. No self preservation at all.
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.

He's already running around with a metal plate in his head, so the head gash was probably nothing really to him. He's nuts.

Glad that Corey's had heart issues ruled out. Not sure I like a week timeline being put on him when we don't even know what caused it yet. They need to take as long as they need to find out everything they can, and then and only then can a decision be made.

I just want to take a moment and recognise how well our club puts player welfare above all else.

We have automatically said we will support you and you are out for a month or more until we know you are ok no matter how much we need you.

Knights continued to play Pongia on Sunday after a number of "head knocks that weren't concussion" .
With his history why risk it?

Well done to our medical team AND Ricky for caring more about the person than a win at all cost

Agreed. He's a **** lunatic. He's **** outside of his god damn mind. And we love him for it and it's one of many reasons why he'll be a raiders legend forever... but christ, i'd be having some frank conversations with him if that were my son :lol:

That cant be the standard we expect. In fact we should actively be pushing back against lunatics like Rapa who probably would have played the following week after spliting his skull open and losing a decent chunk of blood if he was given the option. :lol:

It’s funny, because the reason he’s so loved is because it IS the standard most of us expect/want from all our players.

“We don’t care if we lose, but you need to put in 110% out there like your life depends on it, and be prepared to lose a limb or half your skull in the process!”

Unfair expectation for sure, but it’s the unrealistic desire we want to see from everyone

Just for a bit of perspective she came with us to the '19 GF wearing Roosters gear even thnough she doesn't support the Roosters. :lol:

That's the kind of spunk required to deal with this thing. :clap:
Wow, I’d be really proud of that level of trolling from my daughter. Would bring a smile to my face as I thought about how that would serve her well now she wasn’t allowed back in the house Image

On a serious note though, sorry to hear about your diagnoses hrundi and Ultima

4-6 weeks. Seems fair.

Hopefully they can get to the bottom of it in that time, or the time off helps whatever happened to resolve itself. Scary stuff.
