One of the finest scrum halves I've ever seen.  Really sad.  :'(

Very sad news. As above he was one of the finest scrum halves ever.  His fortitude in dealing with his illness was in many ways even more inspiring.  A fine man gone.

One of the all time greats in my humble opinion. A true legend of the game who will be fondly remembered by all who were fortunate enough to see him in action. Rest in peace.

Oh no...such a shame... one of the best 9s I've ever seen.. strong, quick and a real competitor... just shows you never know what round the corner
