Far to young at 56.

RIP Spud.

Terrible news, you can only feel for his family.

I was just looking at some footage of the accident and wow he has hit that tree with a massive impact. It is very difficult to understand how such a high impact accident could happen in that location.

RIP Spud

It would nearly have to be something like this. No brake marks and very high impact. Very sad.

I think the sad reality is that us men all have plenty of people around us to talk to but sometimes we just don’t open ourselves up.

Frawley was open about his struggles.

Everybody loved him, as Nathan Buckley explains here, but it sadly wasn't enough.

Very sad.

The speculation has reminded me that I need to keep an eye on my mates and that we all need to look out for each other.

So very sad for everyone

It’s an unpleasant reminder of how serious depression is when it can take someone with as strong a character as Frawley who is also actively working in mental health awareness and has been open with his own struggles

Stay close to your loved ones...
