Sad news if not totally unexpected. Long time contributor to this forum and a passionate RL fan and did more for spreading the game than 95% of us will ever do. 
RIP

The penny just dropped with the reference to LRL.  Just saw his photo on the Obituary thread and he looks many years younger than myself.  I didn’t know him apart from his postings but condolences to his family and friends.

That's very sad news. We had a few differences of opinion on here down the years but his contribution to the game, and his passion for spreading it, were enormous. Condolences to his family and friends.


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.

RIP.

Had disagreements with him on here but it was always differences of opinion and never personal. He'll be missed and a sad loss to both his family and TGG.

Just now, Johnoco said:

Let's not forget, he was only what...46? Terribly sad. 

Yes, and I think he battled for over 5 years?? Sad, but also inspirational at the same time.

Bloody awful news, he seemed like a top geezer and so passionate about RL.

Reading the thread from Craig's link over on AOB's obituary thread filled me with emotion.

People with a terminal illness can show such amazing courage, especially Simon considering he was only 46 and had a 4 year old daughter.

Heartbreaking.

RIP fella.
