As it's all over Twitter, including from Martyn Sadler, it's pointless keeping it quiet now. Please be sensitive with your posts, especially as to speculation on cause/reason.

RIP Terry Newton.

Rugby League is a sport that desperately needs to expand its geographical supporter base and its player base. This imperative means that all other requirements are secondary until this is done.

All power in the game should be with governing bodies, especially international governing bodies.

Without these actions we will remain a minor sport internationally and nationally.

Sad news, R.I.P.

Thoughts are with his friends and family.

Seconded - a sad way to start a week of celebration for the Wigan club. Difficult to find the right words at this time for a bloke that polarised opinion in the game, but for all his failings he was deeply passionate about RL and was a great servant to a number of clubs and that is how I will try to remember him.

Unfortunately, there is going to be some difficult decisions for the RFL and the Grand Finalists over whether the traditional marks of respect are appropriate for Saturday's game given his recent circumstances and his longer history with the opposition.

A sad day - condolences to his family and those that cared about him. RIP Terry.

This is absolutely awful news.

The guy played the game very hard and sometimes overstepped the mark but he was still a terrific player IMO.

Only 31 years of age. An appallingly tragic waste of a life.

RIP to him and utmost condolences to all his family and friends.

Jake Connor : "I don't know, to be honest I haven't spoken to him."

Utterly mad and astoundingly tragic piece of news.

I couldn't believe he is the third most talked about topic over on Twitter at the moment in the space of half an hour. Maybe says something about the sheer shock of this news.

RIP Terry.

Sad news, Terry was a fine rugby player and should be remembered as such.

The Newton family have now lost two members of their family at a very young age.

Condolences to Terry's family and friends.

Sorry, but that's nonsense.

If the people in charge find the decision on whether or not to honour Terry's memory difficult, then we have the wrong people in charge.

He was a 31 year guy, who made some bad decisions in his life, many of us have done the same, but maybe not you.

Agree with his recent conduct or not, he made a positive contribution to the game and was a joy to watch. Thoughts are with all those who knew him at this terribly sad time.

Cant believe this, only saw him Friday stood outside of his pub. The worst part is if you look on his profile on facebook. Turns your stomach when you read it

I have nothing but sympathy for Terry and condolences for his family and friends, you could tell the genuine regret about some of the decisions he had made recently and also the sadness regarding his sister on the recent Sky interview.

From a sensitivity point of view I was just questioning whether a match against Saints would be appropriate, given the history and also it is a unique situation for obvious reasons aside - if that is inappropriate I apologise as it was not intended to be so.

Personally I hope Wigan wear black armbands for the game, because he was a great servant to our club.

Minutes applause please, it avoids the spectacle of late-comers, kids, drunks or worst of all the intentional a-holes breaking a silence. The guy, a GB international lest we forget, deserves a send-off in the biggest game.

Couldn't agree more. Here's hoping.
