Sadly another death - this time in Australia due to a head injury after a tackle.

James Ackerman: Sunshine Coast Falcons player dies after injury

A rugby league player seriously injured during a Queensland Cup match in Australia has died in hospital.

James Ackerman, 25, was playing for the Sunshine Coast Falcons when he suffered a head injury in a tackle five minutes into a game against Norths Devils.

Seems to be a few tragic incidents ATM.

Sad news indeed, however getting your head in the wrong place is often part of rugby. Look at Leigh Halfpenny he's done it a few times and got some bad head injuries.
