Legendary NRL figure Paul Green, who won the premiership in 2016 as coach of the North Queensland Cowboys, died Thursday at his home in Brisbane at the age of 49.

The death of the former halfback – who won one of the highest honors in the sport as a player when he received the Rothmans Medal in 1995 – has left the football world in shock and mourning.

An autopsy will be performed to determine his cause of death. Those close to the ex-Cronulla Sharks star are devastated, saying there was no indication he was ill.

A star as a player and coach, Green earned one of the game's highest honors when he won the Rothmans Medal in 1995 and won the 2016 NRL final with the North Queensland Cowboys
