It was a sad and painful time in the world of club rugby after the loss of 25-year-old, Judd Bevan who played for False Bay RFC.
According to the club, Judd was participating in practice last night when he collapsed, while prolonged efforts to resuscitate him were unsuccessful.
Judd’s father, Paul, has been a member of the Bay for a long time, first on the pitch as a First XV prop and then returning in various management roles.
During these sad and difficult times, the rugby community is painfully affected when someone so young with such a bright future ahead of them passes away so soon.
Judd was described as a “gentle, loving and popular soul” who was also admired for his skills as a former First XV player at Wynberg Boys High School.
He will be remembered for being a loving father, a devoted husband and a hardworking individual.
The rugby club went on to offer their condolences to Judd’s father, Paul, his mother, Gail, his sister, Tatum, his wife Nickita and his child, Peyton. This includes his in-laws Greig and Yvonne Hains.
