Potter blames lack of water
Thursday 31 May 2012
The Bradford coach, Mick Potter, believes dehydration may have been partly to blame for Adrian Purtell's heart attack.
Purtell was yesterday released from Leeds General Infirmary, where he spent three days undergoing surgery for a blocked artery after being taken ill on the way home from the Super League derby with Leeds. The match was played in soaring temperatures at Manchester's Etihad.
"No I wasn't happy," Potter said. "I think they needed more water. I think all the officials were hydrated up on the sideline enough. The people out there performing in those conditions I don't think were getting enough."
