Rugby community in shock after sudden death of club manager

AS Monaco Rugby is in mourning following the unexpected death of club manager Vincent Romulus.

The Monegasque club revealed on social networks Tuesday morning that they had just been hit by the devastating news, responding in part:

“Vincent represented the very essence of our sport, a mentor, a benchmark, a dad for all of us. His authenticity, his strength and his heart of gold made him much more than a member of the club, but a pillar of rugby in France. He knew how to transmit and share the values of rugby like no one else. Today we mourn the loss of an exceptional man, loved by all.”

Vincent Romulus began as a player with AS Monaco Rugby 15 years ago before progressing to manager, and was reportedly in good health. The circumstances surrounding his death are unknown.

Vincent Romulus leaves behind his wife Béa and his children Léa and Hugo.
