Nothing more to say, than commiserations to his family and loved ones...

Incredibly sad news - 55 is no age. As stated above, commiserations to his family, friends and colleagues.

I remember that NZ game well and thought first of all "Props don't score tries often" and followed it up with "Props definitely don't score tries against the All Blacks!". Didn't he flip Fitzy the bird after scoring?

Very sad news, he was a gent and a master of the stories. He could talk under water. RIP BG.
