Cant believe this, only saw him Friday stood outside of his pub. The worst part is if you look on his profile on facebook. Turns your stomach when you read it

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.

I have nothing but sympathy for Terry and condolences for his family and friends, you could tell the genuine regret about some of the decisions he had made recently and also the sadness regarding his sister on the recent Sky interview.

From a sensitivity point of view I was just questioning whether a match against Saints would be appropriate, given the history and also it is a unique situation for obvious reasons aside - if that is inappropriate I apologise as it was not intended to be so.

Personally I hope Wigan wear black armbands for the game, because he was a great servant to our club.

Minutes applause please, it avoids the spectacle of late-comers, kids, drunks or worst of all the intentional a-holes breaking a silence. The guy, a GB international lest we forget, deserves a send-off in the biggest game.
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.

Couldn't agree more. Here's hoping.

                     The 2016 Rugby Union Six Nations - the safer and                                                    more reliable alternative to sleeping pills.

 

                        (Hull FC are top of the Super league, btw)

Here, here.

The guy deserves nothing less, and the game next week would be the perfect opportunity.

You got a link to his profile?

I don't use Facebook, and there are hundreds of Terry Newtons.

I think the remark has been removed Steve, I'll pm you

Whilst I do not suffer fools gladly, I will always gladly make fools suffer

I'm certain they will.

This is RL and Saints fans will treat it with the respect it deserves. We all make mistakes and Terry was no different.

gutted, when he was on sky with brian carney you could see how gutted he was about being banned and he spoke about how he wanted to help young players not make the same mistakes.
you could see just how much he was hurting over what he had done.

What does it mean
This tearjerking scene
Beamed into my home
That it moves me so much
Why all the fuss
It's only two humans being.

Absolutely sickening news. Condolences to Terry's friends and family.

My favourite rugby memory of Newton is a tackle made on Craig Wing from the full back position in the Tri Nations game at Wigan in 2004. What's he doing there?!

There's no dignity in plastic seats
