    Warriors doctor John Mayhew collapsed after an exercise class in Auckland last night and is in an induced coma.
    Mayhew was rushed to hospital but details of why he became unwell are not clear.
    Mayhew, who was the All Blacks doctor for 15 years, on the sidelines for 131 tests, before spending most of the last decade at the Warriors, became an Officer of the NZ Order of Merit for his services to sports medicine in the New Years Honours List.
    Mayhew has worked in squash, world cross championships and the Commonwealth Games team of 1990. He is on the board of Drug Free Sport New Zealand.
    NZ Herald reporter Wynne Gray spoke with Doc Mayhew back in February. Watch the interview below:

  • wtf! Hope he pulls through.



  • Did I hear on the wireless that it was a heart attack?
    Bloody hell, not good man!
    Best wishes to him and his family, hope he comes out the other side of it ok.



  • Sad to hear. From reading books by All Blacks from the 80s and 90s, it is obvious that Doc Mayhew was a massive support to players of that era and is a very good man. Thoughts and prayers with him and his family.



  • Chris Jack offered to buy me a beer if i punched him in the face in 2002. Jesus the whole AB squad was blind that night, led by the coaches.



  • Positive news from Liam Napier's twitter (Stuff journo)

    Good news re doc John Mayhew: "He is no longer in an induced coma and is progressing well; talking with his family and is very comfortable"

    What am I missing?  Seems an odd comment on this thread.



  • in what way?



  • Ok, I must be missing something blatantly obviously which I'm going to regret at some point for looking such a fool, but a comment about punching a blind drunk AB on a thread about an ex-AB doctor in an coma seems a little ...



  • yea, you've read a little more in to it than was supposed to be there. 
     
    did you think i actually did it?

    did the Fern's biggest smart-arse take up Chris Jack's offer for a beer if he punched him in the face, 15 years ago when stated smart-arse was probably at smart-arse peak.  Interesting question.
     
    EDIT - I've just noticed there is an interview which I havent listened to on the original article, I suspect it's probably related to that.



  • was with the missus, so smart ass was dialed back a bit. and i very rarely do what 6 foot 6 jug-eared doofus' ask me. Even for free beer.

    Yep, apparently it's best to be alive when you actually receive said free beer!!



  • Chris Jack: I'll give you a free jug if you go and punch the Doc in the face
     
    M4L: Naaaaaaaaaaa.........
     
    Given some antics I've seen and heard from ABs over the years that one is actually pretty tame. No nudity and dildos like a story I heard about one former AB.....



  • And I finally understand where I had been wrong ...
     
    Chris Jack offered you free beer if you punched Mayhew in the face, not Chris Jack in the face.

    As I was.

    I'd happily punch an AB for free Panhead or Garage Project
     
    In 2002 I'm assuming it woulda been Speights or DB or Heinie though. Hardly worth it.



  • Go and hunt some gluten free tacos.



  • Aren't all tacos gluten free? Why not just hunt tacos?
