I am absolutely numb at the news of Lance Thompson passing away.If you watched Lance on The Fan this year,you would appreciate what a genuine & hard working man he was. Shattered for his family.He proved you dont need to have won GF's or played for your country to be a champion.

RIP Lance Thompson.
The type of guy that was more worried about others coping than himself… this one hurts.
Love you Red ❤️
