OneNation discusses Oliver Minatel’s injury, Roger Thompson challenge

Cavalry FC forward Oliver Minatel suffered a serious leg injury on Saturday after a 50-50 challenge with York9 FC defender Roger Thompson, and was rushed to hospital and underwent surgery as a result.

The OneNation panel – James Sharman, Craig Forrest, and Iain Hume – discuss the nature of serious on-field injuries, and how players can rebound from them, as Hume once did.

Plus, the panel talks about the challenge itself, and whether Thompson was in the right to make the tackle, or if the referee made the right call to show no card for any part of the sequence.
