The Passing of a Legend

Post by strawclearer » Wed Jun 19, 2019 5:57 pm

David Matthews, Leicester Tigers’ record appearance holder and former player, captain, coach, president and director, has died at the age of 82.

So very sad - what a servant to our Club as described in the obituary...

An absolute gent and an invaluable Tiger in every sense.
A very sad loss to his family and Tigers.

RIP Tiger.

Lived the dreams of many, held in high regard by even more.
Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.
