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?!


One of my favourite memories is seein him cryin his eyes out when we lost to Bradford in GF, showed how much it ment to 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.
Not difficult as far as I'm concerned. He should be honoured at the GF by either a minutes silence or a minutes applause.

I always enjoyed watching Terry play, although he used to wind me up rotten. Sign of a good player is that.

Tragic.

RIP, Terry.

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.


Agree fully. RIP Terry. What a waste. Condolences to his family.

Dealt with the announcement quite well on Sky. Carney looks utterly shellshocked. They mentioned O'Connor was devastated - was he supposed to be there today? Missed the first match EDIT: He's on now, ignore me

The last 20 minutes has probably been the saddest (in an emotionally sad way) piece of sports commentating I've ever seen. It's also very clear that neither side were told before kick-off, understandable but I bet they'll feel like rubbish tonight if they celebrate a try or win.

Arguing with the forum trolls is like playing chess with a pigeon.  No matter how good you are, the bird will **** on the board and strut around like it won anyway

I thought Hemmings did a great job and Carney and Mac handled it very well, not an easy subject to handle live and with short notice.

Well done to the Sky team.

I read this and then had to go to sporting life to make sure, as it seamed completely unreal. As a Saint (and one at that who would call Newton everything under the sun on the field of play) I would be very surprised if there was not a minutes silence for Terry Newton next week and black armbands all round.

The man was a giant for Wigan and just because the next game in the season is a final, I see no reason why his passing should not be honoured.

There is alot that can be said about the man, but first and foremost he was a RL player who deserves to be honoured the same as every RL player would be. Biographys and opinions can wait for a more appropriate occasion.

Super League the only place in the world where people still believe that less competitors and a closed market to new competition will improve the quality of the product.

Even the Chinese and the Cubans gave up on these marxist principles years ago.


SL with a reduced number of competitors and a closed market = North Korea.

[I'm not right good with words and I hope this post makes sense with the sympathy intended]

This sad news makes me want to read his book, if only to try and understand the man more and help out his family.

Surreal. Watching the York Oldham game and was just thinking about Chris Percival and how many get taken from the RL world at a young age, then turn on the computer to find out Terry has gone too.

Most emotional I've felt about a RL player since Roy Powell's passing.

RIP and hope his family stay strong.

Lilly, Jacob and Isaac, what my life is about. Although our route through life is not how it should be, I am a blessed man.

Sad, sad news.

RIP Terry
Prior to the festivities, Diana Dors lunched with the local vicar, during which she informed him that her real name was Diana Fluck. The vicar became somewhat worried about his planned speech. After lunch, they arrived at the fte at the appointed time. The vicar, totally unnerved about mispronouncing "Fluck", introduced Diana with these immortal words:

Ladies and gentlemen, it is with great pleasure that I introduce to you our star guest. We all love her, especially as she is our local girl. I therefore feel it right to introduce her by her real name; Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome the very lovely Miss Diana Clunt.
