"Kalyn and the medical staff seem confident he will be okay but they are not as optimistic about Connor's chances," Brown told the Newcastle Herald.

"The bottom line is we won't be risking either of them if they don't get through the session without any difficulty."

KEEP IT COOL

We all know Kalyn Ponga is a cool cat.

For a youngster, he's ultra-relaxed and it was his laid-back attitude which led him to getting a tattoo which reads 'keep it cool' on his arm.

"I got that tattoo and I don't think my parents were too fond or happy, but I just said to them – this is me," he told the blog Top Eight Bottom Eight.
