Very sad to hear the news of former Springbok James Small – the man who , among other achievements,marked Jonah Lomu during South Africa’s victorious and iconic 1995 Rugby World Cup Final. Our deepest sympathies go out to the family, friends and @Springboks

I’m shocked and v saddened to hear about James Small. Not the easiest oke to ref on the field but one of the kindest off it. Amazing self belief and always keen to challenge, its probably what made him special. A hero, a great Bok, a friend.. RIP Bro. You made the most of life!

Condolences to his family, friends and the rugby fraternity at large. He will be sorely missed. pic.twitter.com/NE0VE6xDFj
