Elli Norkett tributes: George North, Nigel Owens and more send emotional messages after Wales international dies

The rugby community is in mourning after news that Wales rugby international Elli Norkett died in a car crash yesterday.

At just 20-years old, she had her whole life in front of her. Not only was she a talented rugby player she was a good human being, probably the most important thing about her.

As an Ospreys in the Community coach, who as recently as last week was working with us as part of the team leading our half-term kids camps at Llandarcy Academy of Sport, she was also a role model to the next generation, an inspiration to boys and girls of all ages who enjoyed being instructed by an Osprey and a Welsh international.

Her greatest legacy will be in those youngsters who continue to enjoy the game of rugby having been fortunate enough to be coached by her on one of our camps.
