Your Say

Anonymous says: VALE DES - A TRUE GENTLEMAN TO THE END (07/03/2016)

R,Murphy says: I went to school with Des,as far back as primary school. He was always a champion sportsman.I am very proud to have played rugby with him at Waverley College in the FirstXV . By the way Des was caption. He was a great bloke and an total gentleman never missing a school reunion even though he at times did not feel the best. It was always great to catch up with him over a beer. He will be sadly missed by many. (09/03/2016)
