PICS: All Blacks Pay A Visit To Jerry Collins With The Webb Ellis

Over the summer, the rugby world lost a true great as former All Blacks star Jerry Collins tragically lost his life in a fatal car accident. 

Earlier this year, the tragic news broke that All Blacks legend Jerry Collins had sadly passed away in a traffic accident along with his partner Alana Madill.

The tragedy came as a major shock to the rugby community world wide, however, despite the universal manner with which his passing reverberated, it is safe to say that in his native country, Collins loss was felt the hardest.

Given the man he was, the pride he had in his country, and what he contributed to the game that is viewed as a religion throughout the nation of New Zealand, the All Blacks will never forget the name of Jerry Collins.

After completing a remarkable World Cup campaign last weekend that ended in New Zealand inevitably lifting the Web Ellis, the All Blacks returned to their native land yesterday and, there was someone they wanted pay a visit to above all others.
