NEWS: Tonga Sevens skipper Atelea Okati passed away after a car accident.

According to Newshub the car accident occurred on December 28.

Okati last played club rugby in Romania with CSM Olympia Bucharest where the team finished third in the 2015 Super Bank season.

He played for CSM Olimpia Bucharest before leaving in July this year.

"When death strikes a team, there is no game plan for the pain," CSM Olimpia Bucharest Danie de Villiers said in a statement.

"Coaches like to believe that they can prepare for anything. Tricks, injury, extreme weather, know how to react in all circumstances.

How can you put into words the emotion that you feel after receiving news so devastating?"
