Semesa Rokoduguni replaces Chris Ashton in Stuart Lancaster’s England squad for QBE Autumn international series
Stuart Lancaster has named his England squad for the QBE...
Swedish golfer Daniela Holmqvist is believed to have been bitten by a spider during her qualifying stage of the LPGA’s Women’s Australian Open.
Holmqvvist thought she had been attacked by a spider which she thought could be potentially fatal so she used a tee to remove the venom.
The Swedish Golf Federation reported that she was in the rough on the fourth hole at the Royal Canberra Golf Club and felt a sharp pain, she swiped it off her leg, and after being told it could have been a Black Widow she used the tee to piece the bite and squeeze out the venom.
Whilst Black Widow spiders do not live in Australia, it could have been a Redback.
Holmqvist went on to complete the round, with medical staff following her around, but after finishing with a 74, she missed the cut.
After the round she told Svensk Golf magazine, “A clear fluid came out, it wasn’t the prettiest thing I’ve ever done, but I had to get as much of it out of me as possible.”
