Terrible news. Was never a fan of his as a coach but I remember him as a player who always gave everything on the field.

Totally shocking. He was a terrific little HB and as a coach, he took the Cowboys to the next level and all the way to the top. Far too young. RIP.

He was a tough little rooster when playing for the Sharks. Hard to fathom as his outward show of toughness and robustness just does not equate with his death at such an early age.

Quite a shock. RIP Greeny. Condolences to his family and friends.

Shocking news, was never a fan of his but that's purely because he was the coach of one our key rivals, probably our biggest rival in recent times.

As a guy who supports Wynnum, will never forget the run he had at Wynnum as the coach there before he got his opportunity in the NRL.

Very sad, the Dolphins had him ready to be on staff next year and he would have thrived.

He had his quirks but he was a true league man and that can't be faulted. From Wynnum, Tigers, Sharks, Cowboys, Broncos, Roosters and Eels lots of clubs will be upset today.
