Tributes are pouring in following the sudden and tragic sudden death of Logan Holgate, 18, who had been deemed a ‘star of the future.’

Daily Mail reports that the cause of Logan’s passing is still unconfirmed. We might need to wait for more to discover his death cause.

The Rugby Football League (RFL) confirmed on Wednesday, January 11, that the Cumbrian teenager had died suddenly.

It paid a touching tribute to the talented teenager, stating, “Everyone connected with the England Community Lions Programm was saddened to hear about the sudden passing of Logan Holgate.”

Logan was on the U-18 pathway at Salford and was chosen for the England Community Lions U-19s last year.

He had been playing for Hensingham besides his role in Salford’s development set-up. He was set to move up to the reserve team this season.

Salford Red Devils paid tribute on Twitter, writing, “Everyone at Salford Red Devils is saddened to hear about the sudden passing of Logan. Our thoughts are with his family at such a sad time.”

The wider rugby league community has reacted to the tragic news.

The club Holgate represented at the youth level, Hensingham ARLC, also paid tribute on social media.

“Logan has been with our club since he was young and had played for our open age and U18’s’ this year,” the post said, before expressing sympathy to his family and friends.

Likewise, a statement from St Benedict’s RUFC read, “All at St Benedict’s are devastated. Logan was a rising star on the local and national rugby scene at the age of 18.”

West Cumbria Masters RLFC, Egremont Rangers, Distington ARL, Wath Brow Hornets, and many others have also sent condolences.

The Red Devils Hooker Was An Emerging Rugby Star

Logan Holgate had followed in his older brother’s footsteps by making a significant contribution to the sport.

The talented hooker followed in the footsteps of big brother Ellison and younger brother Fletcher by joining the Lions.

Logan first drew attention in 2021, when he made his Lions debut for the U-16s against Wales in Colwyn Bay.

His burgeoning club form helped him cement his place in the Under 19s selectors’ plans, with him impressing in trials before making it to the final touring squad that made history in Italy last September.

“During the exhausting six-game qualifying day, he was a virtual ever-present, impressing teammates and staff with his work ethic, infectious attitude, and quick wit,” his team wrote.

Logan was instrumental in England winning the Under-19 European Championship in 2022. He was outstanding in the semi-final and final as the Lions defeated Wales before defeating France in dramatic and emotional scenes.
