On those early mythical Munster European days he was the mythical man at its heart. He was also a top top bloke. His poor family. #RIPAxel

Axel has journeyed with Munster from the start of the pro era - an utterly incalculable loss to the province and to Irish rugby

Disbelief here in Paris. Foley was beloved. One of the guys that built the Munster machine in Europe. Irish rugby legend.
