Northern Suburbs Rugby League Football Club (Norths) sends their sincere condolences to the family and friends of Sunshine Coast Falcons player, James Ackerman, whose passing yesterday has impacted so many in our tight-knit rugby league community.
“James was well known within Queensland rugby league circles through his achievements in our game, and most importantly the manner with which he carried himself,” said Norths Chief Executive, Jamie Dowse.
“The rugby league community, and Norths in particular, are extremely saddened by this event.”
Norths, in conjunction with NRL welfare management staff, are in constant contact with the players and staff involved. Ongoing support will be provided to those affected.
