Foy's condition worsens
ORARA Valley rugby league player Ardyn Foy remains under watch in hospital after being seriously injured in a freak training accident while preparing for last Sunday's Group 2 clash with the Port Macquarie Sharks.
The 20-year-old winger is believed to have perforated his bowel after leaping high to catch a ball and then hitting the knee of another player upon landing.
Ardyn's parents were called to the bedside late last week when an operation was being considered and his mother told the Coffs Coast Advocate yesterday his condition had worsened.
“We are very concerned and are hoping for good news from the doctors,” she said.
“Knowing that so many are wishing him well is a big help for his recovery.”
Axemen President Glen Soper visited his player yesterday and said he was shocked by the pain he appeared to be in.
“The poor kid is as crook as all hell and I was reluctant to hang about too long in case having too many people about made him uncomfortable,” he said.
“Believe it or not his superior fitness may have played against him as the impact in the accident sent the shock right through to the bowel. All we can do is wait for the results of the x-rays and tests and wish Ardyn the best for a speedy recovery.”
