        That is terrible. Life can be so cruel. RIP to him & his wife and I hope the little one recovers.

          What sad news. Tremendous player and by all accounts a good egg all round. I hope the little one pulls through.

          Without being glib, it really does put things into perspective. As we draw those last breaths, we'll be thinking of the love, the family, the friends, and the joyous times.

          Everything else really is inconsequential.

              What a player he was and top bloke by all accounts.

              My thoughts are with his family and of course his poor child.

                Appallingly tragic. Nothing that ever happens on the rugby field can come even remotely close in terms of this. Definitely time for some reality checking and perspective about what's important in life. RIP.

                  Here is the story and a great one it is as well. RIP Jerry Collins.

                        Tragic is the only word for this. Heartbreaking to think of the poor child that's left behind too.

                          Desperately sad. RIP Jerry, and your wife too. I hope the little one pulls through. All of NZ will look after her.

                            Desperate to see a family ripped apart like that. Hope the child can make a full recovery.
                            Jerry was a great player, unreal strength.
                            Rip to him and his wife.

                              One of the iconic stars of rugby in the noughties. RIP.
