May he rest in peace.

Farewell to the great Dave Hadfield.

The Newtown RLFC extends sincere condolences to the family and friends of the English journalist and author Dave Hadfield, who passed away earlier this week. Dave was widely regarded as one of the foremost rugby league journalists, authors and commentators of the past forty years.
Dave had visited Australia and New Zealand on numerous occasions and had made many friends within Newtown Jets circles.
