Sad news coming from France that Jerry Collins and his wife have died in a car crash, while their baby daughter is critically injured.

A real back row enforcer in a great All Blacks side. Far too young to have gone.

Sad news indeed. Seemed to be bizarre accident.
Nowadays referees decide matches, players by how much.

This is so very sad. This link shows what the true rugby spirit is. Friendly, inclusive - a big family. We have lost a great rugby player but also, from these clips, a really great guy. If anyone hears of a collection for his daughter please post a link.

Chris Masoe dyed the top of his hair blond tonight in the Top 14 semi final as a tribute.
