Former Stormers centre dies
Former DHL Western Province Stormers centre, Tinus Linee, passed away this morning, after suffering from Motor Neuron Disease (MND). He was 45.
Linee was diagnosed with MND in May of 2013, the same disease that former Springbok and Bulls captain, Joost Van der Westhuizen, was diagnosed with in 2011.
Van der Westhuizen paid tribute to Linee, by posting on his official twitter account, “Sad day for rugby in SA. Just Received news of the passing of a rugby legend and EMS Warrior Tinus Linee RIP my friend #J9Foundation (sic)”.
The former Western Province centre was never capped as a Springbok, despite participating in nine tour games for the Boks between 1993 and 1994.
