What can you say?

I always think if you really have it in for an opposition player, it's because you'd secretly like him in your team - well that's not maybe always true - but in Newton's case it was.

So so sad - RIP Terry

Tragic news my thoughts go out to his poor wife, kids and parents. What a terrible waste of life from somebody who still had so much to offer the game of rugby league.
Please let him be remembered for the right reasons he was a fantastic player one of the very best.
He made one mistake and credit to him he held his hands up

Love him or hate him as a player, we all talked about him, which showed what impact he could have on a game.

Loved watchin him at Bulls and also getting stuck into the Aussies at test level.

RIP.

It also shows that RL can only become the top news story on the likes of BBC when tragedy's like this take place. When great things happen they don't want to know.

Sad but true.

I haven't posted on here for months, but I think this is an event worth commenting on.

Terry was someone who gave everything to the game, possibly sometimes he put too much into it.

Whatever, happened, it shouldn't have ended this way. RIP Terry, you'll be missed.

Very sad news. I'm sure his memory will be marked with great respect at Old Trafford.
I'd rather have a full bottle in front of me than a full frontal lobotomy.

he was the player you loved to hate when he played against your team, but secretly you wished he played for your team.
RIP Terry.

It's good to see everyone remembering the great player he was, as pointed out by many he was always up for games against the Aussies and they respected him for it. Sad the way things have ended, but Terry appears to have been a troubled soul during the last few months and this must be an awful time for his family.

RIP Terry

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.



I agree completely. His banning was a devastating blow to the man, and he deserved some psychological counselling in the light of his lifetime of service to our game.

If something good is to come out of this tragedy, then I hope it is that the rugby league officialdom thinks about ways to provide psychological counselling to players in need, and that includes players who have been banned.

The man still had some playing future ahead of him. What a terrible waste of a valuable life.

RIP

This tearjerking scene
Beamed into my home
That it moves me so much
Why all the fuss

Strange one this. I was never a fan of Newton even when he played for Leeds.

What he was though is 100% committed to RL and that he should be remembered for.

His problems were I think to due to his own choices whether he was badly advised or not is a separate matter.

Whatever his problems leaving a family to cope with the aftermath to me seems a bit of a cowards way out to me.

I'm sorry if that offends some folk but that is my opinion.

Still think the game as a whole should remember him next weekend though and think about how it supports other players who end up in situations that change their lives.
