“We are all devastated by this news. Keith was a very popular character amongst the playing group,” Manly coach Des Hasler said in the statement. “He will be sorely missed but never forgotten by the Sea Eagles.”

Titmuss rose through the junior ranks of the club and scored the winning try for Manly in the national youth championship in 2017. A promising forward, he was a member of Manly’s 30-strong full-time NRL squad, although he hadn’t played in the national top-flight competition.

“This is a tragic day for rugby league,” NRL chief executive Andrew Abdo said. “The game has lost a promising young player with the world at his feet.

“We are one family and today we have lost a member of that family. On behalf of the (NRL) Commission and the game I send my deepest condolences to Keith’s family.”
