    Sadly passed away with his partner in a car crash in France. 3 month old daughter fighting for her life in hospital.

    Extremely sad news.

    RIP, Jerry and Alana.

    Extremely sad news to hear about, was a brilliant player. The circumstances of this are just heartbreaking to read.

    Prayers go out to his daughter.

    Went way too soon.
    Tormented us aussies way too often.

    Great show of respect from the local canes crowd yesterday.
    Hope I get to see one today at the rebels game.

    RIP.

    Feel for the little one who if she pulls through, is going to spend pretty much her entire life without parents.

    Sad to hear of another former AB passing away. "Storming" Norman Berryman died of a heart attack. RIP, Norm.
