Vale Keith Titmuss

Well, what do you say?

We like to have some fun on Inside Feed but this stuff knocks you around a bit.

As die hard rugby league fanatics, we spend our time critiquing the referees and debating the apparent hot topics of the game and then something like this comes along and knocks the wind out of your sails.

Big time.

Keith Titmuss went to training and didn't come home.

It puts everything into perspective when a tragedy of this magnitude strikes.

The 20-year old got ill during training and was taken to Northern Beaches Hospital but died not long after.

Breaks your heart.

You wonder how things like this can happen to young and presumably fit athletes? You struggle to make sense of it all.

Titmuss hadn't played a game of first grade, he was earmarked to do that this year.

He had worked his way up through the Manly junior pathway, having signed at the club at just the age of 14.

A much loved member of the Manly squad, Titmuss had made all the representative teams and was named Manly's Jersey Flegg Cup Players' Player in 2019.

Here he is scoring the match winning try in the U20's grand final of 2017.

At a time this like this, everybody is just looking for explanations.

How, why?

It is incredibly sad, I am sure there will be a post-mortem which may shed some light on what exactly happened to the young fella.

I didn't know Keith Titmuss, I'd only watched him in a couple of games, but all we can do right now is pray for the family and send them love.

Manly is a classy organisation, they'll handle this as best they can.

RIP Keith Titmuss.
