The world of rugby is mourning the death of David Tait, the former Sale forward and Scotland seven-a-side international who was killed after falling from an apartment block in Hong Kong.
Tait (25) had retired from professional rugby after suffering a series of injuries, but was still playing for the Kowloon club after moving east to start a career in corporate finance with KPMG.
A number of internationals, including England scrum-half Danny Care, expressed their feelings on social media. Care described Tait as “a good friend and an absolute legend of a bloke”.
Tait, a back-row forward, spent five years with Sale, who signed him as a teenager. He went on to become a member of the England Under-20 squad before switching rugby allegiance to Scotland.
