Llanharan RFC would like to send their condolences to ex player Karl Pring and his family following the tragic passing of his son Richard.
Richard’s family has paid the following tribute to him: “As a close family we are truly devastated at the massive loss we have experienced in losing Richard. Our lives will never be the same, and nor would we want them to. Richard was a son, a father, a fiance, a brother and a friend.
“He was a massive presence that never failed to get you laughing. He would help anyone. But it is often those who help others who also need the help most.
“Mental health amongst men is often a taboo subject. It's usually overlooked and underplayed. Swept under the rug. Please, if you or anyone you know needs help, seek it out.
“The family would also like to thank everyone in our small, but close community, for their kind words and support at this time. It is okay not to be okay.”
