Awful news about Matt King. A man who achieved so much, gone far too soon.

Condolences to his family and friends.

Had the great pleasure of Matt's company several times over the years - at Broncos games but also at his book launch at the RL Presidents Ball in Leeds some years ago. Truly an inspiration. His contribution after just a few tragic minutes as a rugby league player is greater than most of us over many years could dream of. His stoicism and determination were always there for all to see.

RIP Matt, a truly inspirational young man who has been taken too soon. He achieved so much in such a short time. Thoughts with his family

Such sad news, gone far too young.
RIP fella.

It would be nice if the club could do something to mark his passing, ideally a bit more than just the black armband and a minutes silence type of thing.
Matt King overcame the enormous difficulties his injury brought, faced them head on and won!
I know we never saw him play for the first team but could he be inducted into the LBSA Hall of Fame?

Shake your chains to earth like dew
Which in sleep had fallen on you--
Ye are many -- they are few.'
