RUGBY players from Times Territory paid tribute to a club colleague on Saturday.
Welwyn Rugby Club held a minute's silence in memory of Daniel Ginty before their weekend game against Westcliff. Players also wore black armbands.
Soldier Daniel, 26, of Beehive Lane, WGC, was killed in a car crash in Wales after watching the RBS Six Nations match between Wales and England in Cardiff.
His dad John and brother Adam both played for Welwyn teams at the weekend as colleagues paid their respects.
"Our thoughts and condolences are with Dan's parents and his brother Adam," said Welwyn club chairman Bob Swindell.
"We are pleased that Dan's family were able to attend the match on Saturday and that John and Adam actually got a chance to play together for the fourth team."

"It is such a terrible loss of a young life. Dan will be missed by all that knew him."
A minute's silence was also kindly observed by both teams in Hatfield 2nd XV's fixture away to their Chesham counterparts on Saturday.
"Daniel was an ex-player of Hatfield and a good friend to all who knew him," said club member Eugene Bruce.
"He will be sadly missed."
