“Heroes Get Remembered, But Legends Never Die.”
We cannot even imagine what it was like to be a Munster rugby player yesterday.
Gearing yourself up for your biggest game of the season so far against French giants Racing 92 in Paris, only to learn that your head coach was found dead overnight in his hotel room.
It sends shivers down your spine just thinking about it. How does one reacts and deal with such tragic news so suddenly. Your mood instantly changed from excitement and nervousness to complete and utter sadness and pain.
Simon Zebo was set to start at fullback for Munster yesterday before the tragic news broke and the game was called off in honour of one of Munster’s greatest legends.
He has since posted this heartwarming message on Instagram along with this powerful tweet, quoting the infamous Babe Ruth.
Some incredible memories with an incredible man that will never be forgotten..Heroes Get Remembered,But Legends Never Die..#RIPAxel
