Hadleigh man dies in Australia

A HADLEIGH man has died suddenly in Australia.

Joshua Rix, 23, collapsed and died in Perth earlier this week.

The Sudbury Rugby Club player had flown out after his mother was taken ill, but she died before he got there. It is believed he died while making arrangements for her cremation.

Sudbury Rugby Club were due to play a home match against Norwich on Saturday, but have postponed the game for a week as a mark of respect to Mr Rix.
