Sadly missed. One of the good guys IMHO. RIP.
It's an easy kick for the lad but, as we say in Rugby League, there's no easy kicks.

The RFL wishes to send its condolences to the family of BBC Radio 5 Live broadcaster David Oates, who passed away last night after a short illness. He was 50.
David Oates was a regular commentator on Rugby League on BBC 5 Live and 5 Live Extra where the lifelong Blackpool fan’s knowledge of, and love for the sport always shone through. He also commentated on a number of Championship matches for Premier Sports.
“On behalf of everyone in Rugby League I would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to David’s wife Charlotte and their children at this terrible time,” said RFL Chief Executive Nigel Wood.
“David was not just a friend to the sport, he was a friend to many people at the RFL and we are shocked and saddened by his untimely death.
“As a broadcaster he was the consummate professional: his commentaries were never anything other than accurate, intuitive and knowledgeable.
“As a man, ‘Oatise’ was funny, immensely likeable and thoroughly decent. We are all going to miss him terribly.”

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.
