Mat Rogers has pulled out of the Waratahs country tour following the sudden death of his father, Steve Rogers.

Fraser Neill, chief executive of NSW Rugby said: "Mat was due back for the Waratahs country tour but it’s obviously more important that Mat is with his family at this difficult time.

"We have been in contact with Mat and expressed to him our deepest sympathy for his great loss.

"Mat is a pretty stoic character and I’m sure he’ll receive nothing but the best possible support from his family, friends and team-mates.

"Mat will know when it’s time to come back but for now all we want to do is support him."
