When Collins played for Barnstaple

Sport Wales remembers when former New Zealand and Ospreys star Jerry Collins turned out for Barnstaple RFC's 2nd XV while on holiday in Devon in 2007.

The 34-year-old and wife Alana Madill died in a car crash in France, with their daughter, Ayla, in a critical condition in hospital.

The couple's car was in a collision with a bus near the southern town of Beziers in the early hours of Friday.

Former flanker Collins, who had been playing for French side Narbonne, made his debut for New Zealand in 2001 and won 48 caps.
