Former All Black Jerry Collins tragically killed in car crash

His baby daughter is now saved. She woke up about one week ago and she got brain surgery. She can breathe on her own and she's accepting the bib.
Doctors are monitoring her to check what problems she could have.

Hurricanes set up final clash with Highlanders after big win over the Brumbies

Supporting the Canes too :) They said before the match they would play in JC honour.

The final should be great as none of the clubs have won previously.

Thousands turn out to honour Jerry Collins at Porirua funeral

Great to see how many people came to honor his memory.
Baby Ayla is expected to come out of coma, but it can be days before she wakes up.

Neemia Tialata and other former All Blacks' roadside Haka tribute to Jerry Collins

You can ! I was there at the RWC 2011 during the 3 weeks of the pool matches, and it was an absolute blast.
Lots of tribute everywhere, from Narbonne with a march (his last club) to the Henri Tuilagi jubilee changed into a tribute to Jerry last Saturday.
Their little baby is still in a critical state in hospital, keep her in your prayers.

And thanks to Rugbydump for the black "back screen".

The version with the raw sound (more powerful) is here:

Tana Umaga helps Colin Charvis after huge Jerry Collins hit

Wondering if this was illegal at that time ? These tackles became illegal after that hit against BOD, i believe.

Video of Jerry Collins Haka the day before dying in a car crash

This should be correct, because he was due to play in the Tuilagi Jubilee. And the Jubilee ended up as a tribute to Jerry Collins with the Tuilagi family dedicating their Haka to him.

RIP Jerry Collins

The day Jerry Collins played for Barnstaple Rugby Football Club's 2nd XV

Wonderful story. Proved if needed how a great man he was.

RIP Jerry Collins.

Former All Black Jerry Collins tragically killed in car crash

Learnt on Friday morning from a colleague the passing of Jerry Collins and his wife. Could not believe it.
Their baby Ayla was in desperate state at first, and she's now in critical state, which is a little better (or less worse).
What happened is their car stopped on the motorway for an unknown reason, and a big bus rammed the car from behind. Don't even know how the baby could manage to survive this.
Photo of the car here if you're strong-hearted:

Also fundraising in New Zealand and a Henri Tuilagi jubilee event on sat 6th in Perpignan (South of France) with benefits sent to the family.
The Toulon club where JC played one year had all its players with black armbands on sat 6th. And the Baby Blacks at the U20 RWC dedicated their Haka to Jerry.

RIP Jerry Collins
