So sad to hear of Bernie's death. Met him back in the late 1980s at Burlington Rugby Football Club. A terrific guy and outstanding club mate. Never a dull moment with Bernie. Always fun to be around. Enjoyed many an end-of-season Centaurs tour to Pittsburgh with Bernie and the guys. Deepest condolences to Bernie's family. He will be greatly missed by those of us in the rugby community. Cheers, Bernie. RIP.
