Hundreds of people gathered on the Mid North Coast today, to farewell Old Bar teenager, Joel Dark.
The rugby league player died after collapsing on the field following a head knock, during a game in Newcastle earlier this month.
Only family and close friends – including his cousin Boyd Cordner – were invited to today’s funeral service, which was live-streamed to the local tavern and bowling club.
Members of the community waited outside the oval at Old Bar to say their goodbyes.
Joel Dark was 19.
