British rugby player dies after visiting nightclub on Sri Lanka tour

The Durham-based club was scheduled to play several games in and around Colombo in the course of the Sri Lanka tour

The judicial medial officer gave an open verdict and sent body samples for further analysis, police said.

Tom Baty, 27, was admitted to hospital with breathing difficulties two days ago.

Both from Durham, the players were on tour with one of the club's teams called the Clems Pirates.

Tom Baty, 26, had been taken to hospital along with teammate Thomas Howard, 25, who was confirmed dead yesterday.

The player, Bett Thomas Reid was admitted to a private hospital due to a breathing difficulty last Sunday (May 13).

Several players had gone to the nightclub after playing their tour-opener against Ceylonese Rugby and Football Club in Colombo on Saturday.

He said the club had organised numerous tours overseas in the past and had never had any problems before.

Durham County Councillor David Boyes said Durham City RFC was a very well organised, well-equipped organisation which oversaw a number of teams.

"My thoughts are with the families and friends and team-mates", the councillor said.

The British embassy said in a short statement it was assisting the players' families and was in touch with local medical services.

Neil Foster, chief executive of Tynedale RFC wrote: "Tragic news".
