The greatest game of all has lost one of the finest ambassadors for Country Rugby League after David Scott died of a sudden heart attack on Saturday.

A premiership winning player and coach, the death of the 39-year-old has shattered all those aligned with the sport in the Western Region.

Just last week it was announced that Scott would coach St Pat's another two seasons in Group 10 Senior Rugby League.

He was also preparing to coach Group 10 in the inaugural 2008 Toyota Centenary Cup.

A Bathurst Charlestons junior, Scott represented Bathurst Railway, Penguins, St Pat's and very briefly CSU.

Scott won Group 10 premier league premierships with Bathurst Penguins in 1994 and 1997, the latter as captain-coach.

He also took Western Division to their last AAMI Country Divisional Championships title in 2004.

Country Rugby League vice-president Paul Rossiter yesterday said Scott's death was a "shattering shock."

"He had all the opportunities in the world to leave this area but stayed loyal to Bathurst and Western Division," Rossiter said. - Read More, Here
