When I saw this confirmed I felt absolutely shocked and stunned and genuinely emotional - One player I always feared when playing against us.

Such a young age and truly truly shocking

Huge sympathy to all his family and friends

And as an aside, it's shocking incidents like this that show this great sport for what it is - the comments from people on here show that TGG is just one huge family and we should never forget that.
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

This is such a big shock. He was definitely a player who polarised opinion, but even his biggest detractors would admit he was a very good player. He always gave everything he had. He must have been in such a low place to think there was no way out.

RIP Tezza.

Terry was out last night and friends who were with him until 1 AM said he seemed fine when they left him. No inkling of the tragedy that would take place. RIP Terry

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.

Because the game - its players, fans and followers - is bigger than club loyalties. Part of the game at professional level is calling the opposition all the names under the sun, but when basic humanity is needed RL people have in abundance.

Worded well Jon, we do need to look out for ex players etc, as we should look out for all our friends and family - depression is very isolating

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

A man is getting along on the road of wisdom when he realises that his opinion is just an opinion

RIP Terry Newton.

some people may disagree,but although terry newton was banned, he deserves some respect,and i think this tragedy should make the rfl think about how banned players are treated.this tragedy may be down to depression(speculation),a man who only knows rugby since been a child suddenly becomes unemployed and then what does he do? counselling must be a top priority in these situations.players should not just be abandoned for making a silly decision.sad loss to rugby league.

In the pub this afternoon celebrating an old mate's 60th when this news came through. I can't remember when I last felt such a sense of despair. How could this happen?

This just shouldn't happen. I feel so sad for him and his family, and can only imagine the darkness that must have driven him to it.

R.I.P.


And when they found our shadows
Grouped around the TV sets
They ran down every lead
They repeated every test
They checked out all the data on their lists
And then the alien anthropologists
Admitted they were still perplexed
But on eliminating every other reason
For our sad demise
They logged the only explanation left
This species has amused itself to death
No tears to cry no feelings left
This species has amused itself to death
