can't begin to imagine what the family are going through, best wishes to Tom and Ben and all the family.

As others have said puts it all into perspective and times like this is when the rugby family comes together and tribal loyaltys take a back seat.

Full sympathies and support to the Youngs family. The rugby world will be quietly behind them all the way.

Very noble of Ben to do this. Something I am sure Tom will be incredibly grateful for as it must be an immensely difficult time for the family.

Best wishes sent to the family. Rugby is truly put into perspective when something like this happens. Dreadfully sad and can only send our best wishes to them all!

There are no words - must be truly horrible for them all. If Ben had gone he'd always feel he'd let his brother down, with him staying Tom must feel a bit that his brother has lost out for him. Can only hope that whatever comes out of this brings them closer together.

My final thought looking at my two boys last night having heard about this was to hope that one day they will have the strength of love for each other that if God forbid this sort of crisis ever befell one of them, they'd stand together like the Youngs are.
