Kagia, known as 'KK', played for Littlemore's second XV and was regularly seen supporting on the sidelines.

A club statement on Twitter reads: “It is with much sadness that we have to announce the sudden passing of one of our players.

“K Kairu Kagia, known as ‘KK’ will be hugely missed by all at Littlemore RFC, and we offer our heartfelt condolences to his family and friends at this sad time.
