    Dan Vickerman RIP

    Very sad news from Australia today with ex-Wallabies lock Dan Vickerman passing away at the young age of 37.

    Leaves behind his wife and 2 young children.

    63 Wallabies caps he won before having to retire early in 2012 due to persistent problems with stress fractures in his right leg.

    Sadly all articles and reports mention no suspicious circumstances and have links to Lifeline and beyondblue so it's probably safe to assume the worst unfortunately.

    Desperately sad for him and the family he leaves behind. He was a massively talented and skillful fella for a lock and seemed like a smart and decent fella on tv. He used to do a bit of analysis on whatever channel I watched super 14 while I was in Singapore and he always came across very well.

      Too many rugby players are dying too young.

        Another sad loss to the rugby world. Terrible news to wake up to, thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones, 37 is no age to go.

        The Maul is Back!! LONG LIVE THE MAUL!!

        Stringer is bigger even than his own immense shadow. Pound for pound, he is the best tackler in the world. If you put him into bag of cats he\'d come out without a scratch. He was hit very late for Murphy\'s try. And when he got up, as we knew he would, the crowd cried his name as if he had just fixed the economy.Billy Keane-After Munster\'s famous loss to the AB\'s.

        The Bull-Truly irreplaceable, a mountain of a man. 100 caps!!

                Really awfully sad news. Brings back memories of when we lost Conrad.

                      Really sad news, far too young. RIP

                      Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"
