South Sydney NRL players Dylan Walker and Aaron Gray have been rushed to hospital this morning amid reports at least one of them may have suffered an adverse reaction to medication.

Ambulance NSW has confirmed two men were taken to St Vincent’s Hospital after being found at a home at around 3.45am.

The pair were initially in a serious condition but are now stable and remain in hospital.

Representatives for Walker said the player suffered an adverse reaction to pain relief drugs Oxycodone and Tramadol after recent surgery.

It remains unclear how Gray came to be unwell.

Gray’s father has confirmed to 9NEWS reporter Danny Weidler his son has been taken to hospital.

The Rabbitohs said in a statement both players had undergone recent surgery.

“The South Sydney Rabbitohs have confirmed that two of its players, Dylan Walker and Aaron Gray, were admitted to hospital this morning, and both are in a stable condition,” the club said in a statement.

"Both players had post season surgery last week, following the end of the Club’s season, in preparation for pre-season training to commence later this year.

“The Club is keeping abreast of the situation and will not be making any further comment at this stage.”

Gray, 21, recently re-signed with the club until 2017 and is a NSW under-20 representative.

Some football skills, but sadly no brain 😦

@Demps:

Was going to say the same but didn’t incase i misunderstood the situation…agreed.

Both of them? At the same time? It may be true but it’s an extraordinary coincidence.

If it’s not dumb or suspicious it’s a remarkable coincidence then.

i highly doubt they’d have been taking recreational drugs or any other substance like that so soon post op if that’s what you’re getting at…

Painkillers and alcohol aren’t a good mix.

I’m not suggesting anything other than it seems unlikely two people would have the same reaction at the same time so long afterwards. That’s not to say it isn’t true just remarkable if it is as reported.

You’re aware that plenty of people abuse painkillers, right?

The boys probably just had a few drinks while on tramadol and oxy and didn’t realise what it would do to them. Wouldn’t be the first to make that mistake.

lol there are so many things that can go wrong post op

another article already mentioned that this is not OD

they’ve mentioned the drugs they’ve taken- maybe a new brand was used or something like that.

really shows how badly rugby league players are viewed if the first thought most people have is that there is something suspiscious going on… not having a dig at you guys but if it was two random people in the street having these reactions, the docs and the medical staff would be crapping themselves rather than the blame being directed on the patients.

Not necessarily saying they abused their painkillers, but it’s certainly a scenario. It’s not an absurd conclusion to come to either since both of them ended up in hospital at the same time.

Mac is probably right, they’ve taken their painkillers and had a couple of beers and it’s hit them hard.
