    My ground of appeal is:
    The decision in R v Dica is restricted to the transmission of disease through sexual intercourse.
    Im arguing against this but I'm so confused on what to actually say?

    I can only think of an argument along the lines of that the defendant has not consented to the infection?

    All cases on the OAPA are on sexual intercourse, whereas this case the facts are:

    Dan has recently been told he has Hepatitis C, which then he informed his coach and other players on his team about his condition and asked that he be allowed to continue training while he received treatment. The team agreed Dan could train with them in spite of his diagnosis as he was a key player.

    Then Dan decided to tackle hard a younger player with speed, dropping him to the ground causing a gash to his forehead. Dan administered first aid, without him knowing that he had also suffered from a cut. This led to him infecting the player with hepatitis C.

    I find the case hard, to put a submission together
