updated By Online News Team

Tributes continue to flow for Jerry Collins and his wife Alana who died on Friday in a tragic vehicle accident in France.  Fans of Collins and supporters of Narbonne Club honoured him with a silent march through the French city.

From Porirua to France, former team mates, fans and supporters paid tribute to former All Black Jerry Collins.  About 1500 people turned up to the rally as a mark of respect for Collins and his wife.

Former Hurricane, All Black and current general manager of Samoa Rugby, Alama Ieremia is in Samoa, where he spent time with Collins' parents.

A Facebook page has been set up calling for isle six at Westpac Stadium to be named the Jerry Collins aisle.  There are more than 5800 likes for a page calling for Porirua Stadium to be renamed the Jerry Collins Memorial Park.

The Givealittle page set up for baby Ayla has raised over $20,000.
