Nick Tooth, 25, dies making tackle in Australian club match
A 25-year-old fly-half has died after suffering a head injury while making a tackle for his Australian club side.
Quirindi Lions' Nick Tooth was airlifted to hospital after a clash of heads against Narrabri Blue Boars on Saturday, and died despite surgery.
"There was no foul play, nothing untoward about it at all. Sadly it was just a very tragic accident," club president Charles Murray told ABC, Australia's public broadcaster.
"He was a lovely kid."
Former Wallaby scrum-half Nick Farr-Jones said that that the New South Wales Rugby Union - which he chairs - would provide "ongoing" support to Tooth's family.

This will raise even more focus on head clashes! tragic RIP kid!
