FANS, clubs and famous names in the game have been paying tribute today to Terry Newton, ten years on from the former Bradford Bulls star and Great Britain international's tragic death.

Newton, who made 90 league appearance for the Bulls from 2006 to 2009, scoring 27 tries, died on this day in 2010 aged just 31.

The father of two's death by suicide rocked the game a decade ago and started serious conversations in rugby league about mental health and the use of banned substances.

Ten years on from his tragic passing, many of his former team-mates, clubs and supporters have taken to social media to pay tribute to Terry Newton.

One of the most sought after junior players in the game, the rampaging hooker made his professional debut for Leeds in 1996, making more than 80 appearances for the Rhinos including winning the last Challenge Cup Final to be played at the old Wembley Stadium in 1999.

He then transferred to his hometown club Wigan in 2000, going on to play more than 180 games, winning the 2002 Challenge Cup and being named in the 2003 Super League Dream Team.

Newton also earned 15 caps for Great Britain and three for England, and would have won many more if it were not for injury.

After Newton left Bradford in 2009 he signed for Wakefield, but made just two appearances before receiving a two year ban after testing positive for human growth hormone.

After receiving the ban, Newton became a pub licensee, a role he continued until his untimely death.
