25-year-old David Tait, a former Premiership Rugby Union player died after he fell from an apartment block in Hong Kong. He was known to have represented Sale Sharks and, and also Scotland rugby team. The news came down like thunder crashing over his family.
Tait did not have much luck in his rugby career though he played really well because he used to be down with injuries so he engaged himself in corporate management in finance for multinational firm KPMG. A back-row forward, he spent five years since his teenage with Sale in Greater Manchester as a back-row forward before he went on to play with the Scotland rugby team.
He had also gone for England’s training squad for the 2008-09 International Rugby Board world sevens series, but did not play. Later, before going to the 2009 Dubai Sevens, he joined the team of Scotland. The chief executive of Rugby Players’ Association, Damian Hopley has said that it has been a huge loss in the world of rugby at the death of such a young and talented rugby player and that they would try to do their best in order to help his family who was totally dependent on him. A condolence has also been called for all of his mates to gather and remember the player.
Tait had been a respected man for his humble nature and his clean and fair playing techniques at the field. Not only that, outside the field too at the corporate sector, he had been quite successful because of his efficiency.
Premiership Rugby chief executive Mark McCafferty said that he had no words to describe how he felt after hearing the mishap and he too said that it was mandatory to waste no more time but to stretch out a helping hand to his family.
