Former NRL Star Lance Thompson Found Dead In His Home

IT’S being reported this morning that former St George and Cronulla player Lance Thompson has been found dead at his Cronulla unit.

The cause of death is unknown at this stage but police say his death is not being treated as suspicious.

The 40-year-old played over 200 first grade games, most for the Dragons, before retiring at the end of the 2008 NRL season.

Twitter was flooded with tributes to Thompson, who was a much-loved member of the rugby league community.

Australian Rugby League Commission chair Peter Beattie said Thompson's death was a great loss to the sport.

"A very sad day for rugby league with the passing of NRL star Lance Thompson," Beattie tweeted.

"A much-loved member of the rugby league community. Condolences to his family."
