A moderation request. PLEASE do not post threads about today's sad news until it has been confirmed that the family knows. Until I've been told by someone I trust that his family knows or see it on a mass-media news outlet then I'll simply delete your thread.

As it's all over Twitter, including from Martyn Sadler, it's pointless keeping it quiet now. Please be sensitive with your posts, especially as to speculation on cause/reason.

RIP Terry Newton.

RIP Terry


Rugby League is a sport that desperately needs to expand its geographical supporter base and its player base. This imperative means that all other requirements are secondary until this is done.

All power in the game should be with governing bodies, especially international governing bodies.

Without these actions we will remain a minor sport internationally and nationally.

He was a great player. Condolences to all concerned as we lose another member of the rugby league family too soon.

Seconded - a sad way to start a week of celebration for the Wigan club. Difficult to find the right words at this time for a bloke that polarised opinion in the game, but for all his failings he was deeply passionate about RL and was a great servant to a number of clubs and that is how I will try to remember him.

Unfortunately, there is going to be some difficult decisions for the RFL and the Grand Finalists over whether the traditional marks of respect are appropriate for Saturday's game given his recent circumstances and his longer history with the opposition.

A sad day - condolences to his family and those that cared about him. RIP Terry.

This is absolutely awful news.

The guy played the game very hard and sometimes overstepped the mark but he was still a terrific player IMO.

Only 31 years of age. An appallingly tragic waste of a life.

RIP to him and utmost condolences to all his family and friends.

                Lee Radford rang me the other week....I knew Hull FC were a bit desperate but I had no idea it had got that bad.

Utterly mad and astoundingly tragic piece of news.

I couldn't believe he is the third most talked about topic over on Twitter at the moment in the space of half an hour. Maybe says something about the sheer shock of this news.

RIP Terry.

Sad news, Terry was a fine rugby player and should be remembered as such.

The Newton family have now lost two members of their family at a very young age.

Condolences to Terry's family and friends.

Sorry, but that's nonsense.

If the people in charge find the decision on whether or not to honour Terry's memory difficult, then we have the wrong people in charge.

He was a 31 year guy, who made some bad decisions in his life, many of us have done the same, but maybe not you.

He made his mistakes but he was a rugby league man and this is incredibly sad for anyone to go so young let alone such a talented player of our game.

RIP Terry.

Agree with his recent conduct or not, he made a positive contribution to the game and was a joy to watch. Thoughts are with all those who knew him at this terribly sad time.
