    His death came as a shock, I knew he was ill but this was out-of-the-blue. I remember the comments about him when he first burst onto the rugby world stage, all concerning his size and strength - he set a new standard and now they're all giants!

    He leaves a widow and two young sons. DD

    Such a shame, so young.

    I suppose the kidney issues just put too much pressure on his heart.

    Thinking of his wife and kids :(
