Rugby league fans have raised over £30,000 for the family of Danny Jones.

Jones tragically died of a suspected cardiac arrest after collapsing during his side Keighley’s game at London Skolars on Sunday.

The Rugby League Benevolent Fund appeal had received over £30,000 in donations by the following day.

A statement from Keighley Cougars said: “Danny was much loved and highly respected by all at the club and in rugby league.

“He was the life and soul in the dressing room, a natural leader, a true professional and irreplaceable. We are devastated.”

Jones leaves behind five month old twins and his wife, Liz.
