Vale Keith Aggett

The New South Wales Rugby League extends its deepest condolences to the family and friends of Life Member Keith Aggett, who passed away earlier this week.

Aggett, who played for Parramatta and Balmain from 1953 to 1956, was a long-time servant to the game.

Aggett will be remembered, in particular, for his significant contribution to the Balmain Ryde-Eastwood District club as a player, coach and administrator. He was awarded Life Membership of the NSWRL in 2013, on top of Life Membership of Ryde-Eastwood District Rugby League Football Club, Life Membership of Ryde-Eastwood Leagues Club, and Life Membership of Balmain District Rugby League Football Club. He was also awarded the Australian Sport Medal in 2000. 

“Rugby League has always been a game built on the back of hard work and devotion of its people and Keith Aggett was one of the finest,” NSWRL CEO David Trodden said.

“The game will be poorer without him. He will be sorely missed.”
