    A rugby club has been left in shock after Samoan back row forward Kelly Meafua died after jumping from a bridge into the river Tarn hours after playing in a French second division match.

    Meafua’s club Montauban confirmed the 32-year-old had not survived the incident in the early hours of Saturday morning despite the efforts of a teammate.

    The teammate, named as prop Christopher Vaotoa in French media reports, jumped into the water but was unable to save Meafua

    Vaotoa was taken to hospital with hypothermia and was discharged in good health on Saturday.

    The pair had reportedly been out celebrating Montauban’s 48-40 win over Narbonne just hours earlier in the team’s final home Pro D2 game of the season at Stade Sapiac.

    That's dreadful news, devastating for his family and friends and for the Montauban rugby community.
