FRIENDY FIRE

JAKE TAKES AIM AT THE BRONCOS AFTER BEATING HEALTH SCARE THAT NEARLY KILLED HIM

-

MAROONS hopeful Jake Friend will tonight look to shatter Brisbane’s minor premiershi­p hopes after overcoming a health scare that almost took his life.

When Friend runs on to Allianz Stadium tonight, it will be almost a year since the Roosters rake was rushed to hospital after collapsing suddenly in his Sydney home.

The 25-year-old lost two litres of blood and was later diagnosed with a haemothora­x, a collection of blood in the lung cavity, often the result of repeated blunt trauma.
