Hearing news on Twitter that Steve has lost his fight with cancer in the early hours of this morning.

A truly inspirational man. Devastating if true.

I've also seen that this morning on twitter. I'm hoping that this is just another twitter rumour.... :-(

Absolutely gutted.

Great player, fine fullback and a phenomenal human.

Gave a master class in how to carry yourself through adversity with humility, dignity and courage.

Will be sadly missed.

Hopefully 24,000 people will be able to pay their respects at the last stadium he played professionally at this afternoon.

RIP Prekkie.

How very, very sad this news is.  I last spoke to him just before the St Helens 10k run back in March.  He'd been poorly the night before but had turned out to help pack all the goody bags (which is what me and quite a few others were doing at the time).  He couldn't run the race this year as he had last year but he still found the courage to turn up, pack some bags, chat to us volunteers and encourage everyone from the starting line.

 

As an example of the fighting spirit of humanity he was tremendous and surely a beacon to all those who find themselves in the vile grip of cancer or any life threatening illness.

 

My heart goes out to his family and friends, particularly his wife and children.  They did a sterling job in supporting him and being strong for him.  RIP Steve Prescott.

I never actually thought this would happen. ..even though we knew it was inevitable. An absolute tragedy, gutted. RIP

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

With music deep inside we'll make world unity our plan

A very sad moment which should be recognised appropriately today at the KC.

 

Inspirational, brave, loyal, dedicated and a loving family man. He will be sadly missed by so many.

In a sport of tough, brave men he proved that he was perhaps the toughest; and he was the bravest.

 

RIP, Steve.
