Narbonne fans ensure Jerry Collins will not be easily forgotten

The presence of the man lives on.

THE RUGBY SEASON is back in France this weekend. But it’s understandable if one Pro Div 2 club find it difficult to move on.

Narbonne lost their most famous face when Jerry Collins and his wife Alana Madil died in a tragic car accident in June. Their infant daughter Ayla was also in the car that night and was left fighting for life in intensive care throughout the summer.

Before Narbonne opened their new campaign against Aix en Provence without Collins, the Mediterranean side’s supporters ensured the All Black’s memory would live on with this heartfelt flag.
