    Two players in the South Sydney Rabbitohs' rugby team owned by actor Russell Crowe are 'unable to communicate' in an Australian hospital after overdosing on prescribed painkillers.

    Initially serious, their condition is now stable. CEO of the club, John Lee said the drugs were prescribed for pain and had not been taken for fun. Dylan Walker's agent confirmed there had been a 'reaction' to the drugs oxycodeine and Tramadol.

    The Daily Mail has more details. Spelling one of the drug names a different way too. Sounds like the players are lucky to be alive, and it seems strange such young, top-level sportsmen who are actively playing should be prescribed such powerful drugs. Isn't that Oxycodone the drug nicknamed Hillbilly heroin?
