Heartbreaking. I can't believe it. He was probably the smartest rugby player I've ever seen. RIP Axel

Yep, never had the pace of some of is opponents but made up for it with intelligence and doggedness. Don't think there will be an Irish Rugby fan who won't feel his loss.
Absolutely devastating news that he's gone at just 42 years old, had so much more to offer as a coach , but as brave in taking on the Munster job as he proved as a player in the Red & Green jerseys.

Just watched the 2006 final on Sky. I was in tears after it. What a tragedy.
I was thinking about it today; that Munster rugby team led by Foley inspired a generation of kids to take up rugby.

Fully agree with that, made rugby mainstream and put it front and centre for me at least.
