A special meeting of the PFU Committee convened on Sunday evening where a decision was taken to postpone the Prop of the Year awards dinner in light of the tragic news received during the course of the Championship Finals day re Terry Newton.
Of course, Terry was not a member of our union, but a large number of our current and past membership shared a front row with him and we have always recognised the symbiotic relationship between props and their hooker. Also, we've always admired a fierce competitor, whichever position they took on the field, and Terry was certainly one of those.
With so many of Terry's former colleagues in the union struggling to come to terms with what's happened, we feel it only appropriate to postpone our annual celebration of all things prop forward and an announcement about a rearrangement will be made in due course.
Thanking you kindly.
