Very sad day and a tragic end to what could have been a stellar career as still quite young

Thoughts are with Phil's family, friends and team mates at this difficult time and also with Sean Abbott

Terribly sad day for all involved, especially the Hughes and the Abbotts.

RIP Phil Hughes.

RIP. Very tragic news. I think all cricket should be called off this weekend as a mark of respect.

To respond to Bruce in the NRL thread: it is probably the single hardest loss I have had to deal with at Souths to lose Bully. Much worse than Sam Burgess as he didn't symbolise Souths as Bully did. I think a lot will underestimate just how much a loss he will be to Souths but I fully understand how engrossed he is with NZ and I think given that he will make the successful transition that others haven't.

Heart-breaking news.

Fabulous young man with a fantastic future, sadly, not to be.

Thoughts to Phillips family, friends and the cricketing fraternity.

RIP Phillip Hughes

Unfortunately, this adds to the list of freakish accidents that have occurred in all sports this year. Never in a million years would you expect something like this to happen and is very sad news.

I got a message about an hour before the media announcement from a mate who is a Cricket official. I was in shock and walking around Costco with tears in my eyes. A great cricketer and by all accounts an even better bloke. Absolutely gutted.

Tragedy. I never believed something like that could happen. What a terrible loss to sport in general.

Just terrible news. I was actually really surprised when I heard it on the news tonight, because I genuinely didn't believe it would kill him. I thought it would be similar to Schumacher. It's just awful news to hear.

This is a terrible reminder that any sport can be dangerous.

Rest in peace Phil Hughes.

they had one of the cricket guys on the radio when I was driving to work and I believe (hope I get this right) that he said it wasn't an impact with the skull but that it hit an artery? however it plays he is gone and that is just the saddest news.

something tells me that we actually lost 2 players because I don't know that Abbott will be back either, so gutted for him too.

The impact was to the neck just below the back of the skull. It burst the main artery to the brain and caused a massive bleed into the brain. This type of injury is usually immediately fatal but there was some very good medical attention at the ground before he was transported. I really do feel for Sean Abbott and I would be surprised if he did play again too. Just devastating for all involved. I didn't know Philip Hughes personally but even I am still feeling a bit numb this morning. I can't imagine how his family, friends and those players that were there when it happened must feel. Also, massive kudos to the Australian Captain, Michael Clark. Michaels response to what has happened has been exemplary and shows why he is Captain.

It's just crazy. I don't even watch cricket, and I'd only ever heard of Phillip Hughes. I wouldn't have been able to identify him if I tripped over him in the street. But still, this just breaks my heart. Only 25, three days out from his birthday, which for me makes it all so much sadder, especially given that there were probably plans and presents and things already in place for his birthday. The touching "put down your bat" thing going around online, it almost brings a tear to my eye. Just a stupidly awful, massively unlucky tragedy.

I hope Sean Abbott is in a good state of mind, because I can't even begin to imagine how horrible that might feel. It wasn't his fault, but sadly that doesn't seem to make the whole situation any better.

Great to see NZ and Pakistan show support of Phillip Hughes, first as a mark of respect suspending play for a day, and then the symbol of unity behind the pain of losing a great friend and colleague.

One of the saddest sport stories ever. RIP Phil

RIP05

RIP LJ - loved and never forgotten.

"It was dry for the second go-around. Grice, nervous, worrying about his Bathurst jinx, ran 2:25.9. The amazing Brock, using every last centimetre of bitumen, yet keeping the car straight and balanced and at full noise, came back with a staggering 2:20.0 as if to say: "Match that". And people just shook their heads, bit their lips and wondered who would be second".

The Peter Brock trophy is now where it belongs.

I read about a little boy who put his bat and ball out as a mark of respect.
When quizzed about the ball, he said,"That's for Sean."

Yep we put our bats out before my game today and had a minute silence. We also played it in the spirit that batsmen who edge the ball walk.
