David Matthews, Chief Executive of CCS Disability Action, would like to add his voice, on behalf of our organisation, to the tremendous outpouring of tributes to Sir Colin Meads.

David stated that Sir Colin and his wife Verna's support for disabled people in this country, through IHC, The Rugby Foundation and CCS Disability Action is part of what made him a legend off the field as well as on.

Sir Colin's commitment to people with disabilities and his dedication to fundraising on their behalf over the years has supported many disabled people in leading better, more inclusive lives. The sad loss of Colin Meads is surely felt as greatly at the community level as it is by the world of international rugby. Our thoughts go out to his family at this difficult time.
