Sunshine Coast rugby league player Dale Best dies after collapsing during match in Kawana

A Sunshine Coast amateur rugby league player has died after collapsing on the field during a match. The Maroochydore Swans said Dale Best, 34, was playing for the team in a reserve grade match against the Kawana Dolphins at the Kawana Sports Precinct on Saturday and made an effective tackle before falling to the ground. The club added there was no evidence of foul play or of an injury to his head or neck. Sports trainers performed CPR on Best at the scene before paramedics arrived and attempted to stabilise him. He later died in hospital.
