So sad. Not many All Blacks who endear themselves to me - but you were a dead set legend, on my list of "blokes I'd love to have a beer with". I guess we'll have to do it after the big match in the sky. Doubly devastating is that I found out today that another legend of rugby passed away in an accident yesterday. Carl Maresca was a legend of New York rugby - an uncompromising prop forward and then referee who lived for the game, and was very generous with his time. His passing won't have the broad scale impact that JC's will on the rugby world, but it's important to recognize Carl and his contributions nonetheless. So to both you big fellas, Vale.
