Woke up to the sad news this morning.

November is turning into a disaster month for me personally, with my dad passing away last week, he was a good age of 92 thou.

Last weekend close friends of my wifes family were killed in a light airplane crash in which 4 members of the same family were in the plane.

Desperately sad news - a true sporting icon and probably the most famous rugby player ever. When he burst on to the international scene in 95 he changed the sport.

Was lucky enough to see him play a few times and also met him once. He came to my local rugby club and my son, who was around 4 at the time and loved Jonah, was too shy to speak to him so when I told Jonah this as he was leaving, he made a point of turning round, smiling and waving to my son - made my son's day! Like Jerry Collins, he's gone way, way too soon.
