The fullback returned to Australia last year for rehabilitation after suffering a season ending injury.

He remained there to continue to look after his mum, who was battling a long illness.

On Instagram French shared a heartfelt message: “For forever and more. Words can’t describe the gratitude I have for your sacrifice. Love you Ma. Until we meet again. R.I.P.”
