Stuart Holes - Sad News
- Friday 26th February 2021
With great sadness Sheffield Tigers have heard of the sudden death of Stuart Holes at the young age of 40. Stuart was a 1st team regular in seasons 2005-06 & 2006-07 before moving away.
Ex President Nigel Dakin (2005-09) remembers Stuart:
"Stuart was a gifted player who although playing in the back row could easily have played in the backs. He was always one of the first to arrive at breakdowns and was a great attacking player when he had the ball in his hands. He scored many exciting tries for the first team and always tackled hard. Unfortunately his move away, just as he was entering his prime, was a loss to the club. Stuart was a warm person who will be missed by his many friends at Tigers."
Stuart was voted 1st XV Player of the Year in season 2005-06.
We send our condolences to his family and friends at Nuneaton Old Eds RFC.
