Jock Hobbs

One of the most moving moments of the Rugby World Cup was Jock Hobbs presenting Richie McCaw with his 100th test cap.

It was obvious then that Hobbs was very ill and it is testament to his strong will that he not only watched the All Blacks win their second World Cup but was on the stage for the presentation.

Today, far too soon, the final whistle blew for him.

His death is a loss for New Zealand and for rugby and even more so for his family and friends to whom my sympathy goes.

Keeping Stock writes an eloquent tribute here.
