24-Year-Old Rugby Player Sam Polledri Passes Away From Suspected Heart Attack, According to Brother



Jake Polledri, a former Bristol Rugby player who now plays for Gloucester, announced the tragic passing of his brother Sam on Instagram.

Sam, a 24-year-old rugby player, died of a suspected heart attack.

The elder brother made this heartfelt tribute on Instagram:

With my eyes filled with tears I write that my brother @sam_polledri, aged 24, has passed away of a suspected heart attack.

It is difficult to put my feelings into words. I feel like a chunk of me and my family has been stolen so cruelly.

Sam was my brother, my best friend, and a massive supporter of me always! He had so many plans, a lot of love to give & so many things yet to achieve.

Sam lit up any room he walked into. Selfless, funny & kind. I’m so sorry that his life has been robbed.

Life will never be the same again. He has taught me so much and I will carry this with me in every step of my life.

Rest in peace mio fratello!

As seen in Sam’s Instagram profile, he was also a gifted rugby player:

Sam was listed as a ‘Right Wing’ for the Dings Crusaders RFC 1st XV Squad.

BristolLive commented:

26-year-old Jake who plays for the Italy national rugby union team, and for Gloucester in Premiership Rugby, said his “life will never be the same again.”
