A 23-year-old Waimate man remains in Timaru Hospital in a stable condition following a motorbike accident in which a second Waimate man died.
Simon Proudfoot, a promising player for the Waimate Rugby Club senior side, suffered serious injuries in the crash, which occurred on Sunday night in Coalpit Rd, near Waihao Forks.
Daniel Charles Down, 30, was killed. The two men, who worked together on a local farm, were out riding motorbikes when they apparently collided.
