I was lucky to see Tez play as a junior, he gave his all in every game he played. (he did). I was elated when he signed for Leeds, and gutted when he left. I cried when I was told, just as cried last year when Holmesy went. I cried again when Eddie, Carney & Barrie Mac spoke about him.

I hope you rest in peace Tez, my thoughts are with your family.

Tragic news. Deepest sympathy to all Terry’s friends and family. I’ll always remember for being a great player who gave 100%. He made a terrible mistake for the noblest of reasons; to keep playing the game he loved at the top level and provide for his family. I hope his passing is recognised in some way at OT on Saturday. RIP Terry.

Terrible terrible news.
RIP Terry, was a pleasure to watch you play

Even as a Wire I am sorry but Westwood is nowhere near as skillful as Super Sam or Ellis.

Wazza's main industrys are service industries, call centres, warehouses and the public sector nowadays. All three are under threat from the Tory cuts.

Terrible news. I'm in total shock and thought it was just some sick joke when I first saw it on RLFans.

May I also say how disgusted I am with one of the moderators on that site who decided it would be appropriate to have a pop at Terry for the drugs issue, and when called up on it, decided to use their moderator powers to move it to it's own seperate thread to highlight it even further, and then delete the thread when turned on. Absolutely disgusted.

RIP Terry. You won't be remembered for the mistakes you made.

A terrible shock and desperately sad news, especially as it seemed that he was succeeding at making something positive out of his ban, and contributing to the overall good of the sport with his honest appraisal of his own shortcomings.

Terry was doing more for the sport in the face of this adversity than most ever have, and to lose him at this time is too afwul for words.

Prior to his ban, Terry had cleaned up his game on the pitch, while still maintaining that 100% commitment, and I am sure that my fellow Saints fans have long since consigned any ill feeling to the history books, as Sean Long himself has. I have no doubt that all supporters will give Terry the full respect due to a top player on Saturday.

RIP Terry

Difficult to understand what is going through an individuals mind when they make a decision like this.
This is a desperately sad situation for Terry's family and i would like to offer my sincere condolences.
Stay strong and look out for one another.
Big hugs and kisses to Terry's children and i hope you grow up one day knowing what a fantastic servant to the game of rugby league your daddy was.
I never knew Terry and i never met him in person.
Makes me wonder why i'm in tears as i deliver this particular post.
Then i realise that these things should not really happen and i can't help thinking why?

GOD BLESS Terry and RIP young man.

May the rugby league community remember you for what you were.

A TRUE WARRIOR no quarter asked and no quarter given.

A dreadful shock. He was probably my pantomime villain of the game - like many Saints fans I felt he was obviously talented but veered towards cheap shots that lessened his overall game. Some of my feeling was undoubtedly due to how well he could perform against my team!

Like others, I had thought he was doing OK after the ban and adjusting to new life with his pub and work with the RFL. Tragically that clearly wasn't the case.

Re: the comments of this being "the coward's way out", please cease this. It's an easy thing to say this when life is good; however it's obvious that anyone who feels tormented enough to take their own life is not going to be thinking straight.

Rest in Peace, Terry. My deepest condolences to his family and loved ones.

Always a dangerous player (sometimes in the wrong way, inadvertently or not), but he more than earned his pay at each club he played for. The Aussies didn't like playing him either, which is always a good sign.

But the way a life unravels like this is just awful.

I cried yesterday when I heard the news.

Taking one's life is not the coward's way it is simply the ONLY way he could see things at the time.

May you truly find the peace and comfort you need lad.

God rest your soul and I pray that somehow your family and friends can find some way to get through this so very very sad time.

I think all of us in the Rugby League Family are genuinely hurting at the waste of one so young.

My Granddad died last week, and without sounding heartless, Newton's death yesterday knocked me for 6 more than my relative.

For somebody so young to take their life like this is heartbreaking. Reading the newspaper on my lunch with a full page in the news section dedicated to him was surreal.

My Granddad was 80, and whilst he had suffered, he had lived a full life. Newton is younger than me.
