Rugby player dies after collapse

A Welsh international rugby league player has died after suffering a suspected cardiac arrest during a match.

Keighley Cougars half-back Danny Jones (29), a father of five-month-old twins, collapsed after being replaced early in yesterday's League 1 match at London Skolars.

He was treated by the match doctor and paramedics at the ground before being taken to hospital. But the Rugby Football League (RFL) said that despite extensive efforts to resuscitate him, Jones died at the hospital.
