Oh dear, hope you recover quickly.

I'd offer to help but as you know I'm quite a way behind the action out here. The delay can sometimes be quite a long time.

I can be head cheerleader if there's a vacancy. :-D I can make my own pompoms and if I do them the colours of the rainbow there's no favouritism is there? ;-)

Look after yourself and hope your stay in hospital is short and all goes well. :-) <3

Thankyou Pat :-)

I have just seen the announcement on the television.

I have announced it on a separate thread.

What a heart-breakingly sad tragedy!


Jem and all GR Rugby Union Supporters send their heartfelt condolences to Jerry and Alana's family and friends at this sad time.

Also condolences to his colleagues in the Rugby World.

We are also thinking of the couple's baby daughter and praying for her recovery.

Jerry Collins was signed to play for the Wales Rugby Union Club THE OSPREYS in 2009.

Such was his impact that in his first season with The Ospreys he was voted "Players' Player Of The Year".
