L-R – Keith Rugless & John Peard
Keith was a half back and played his junior football with Renown United in the St. George Juniors alongside Reg Gasnier. They both played President’s Cup for St. George before being graded. As we all know, Reg went on to be a great of our game.
After leaving St. George, Keith joined Northern Suburbs Wollongong in the Illawarra Competition before returning to play with Cronulla in the second division prior to that club entering the main competition.
Keith resides at Engadine with his wife. He informed us that he has five children and seven grandchildren.
He had just arrived home after having a total knee replacement at Kareena Private Hospital in Caringbah.
He was presented with a Men of League polo shirt and cap.
Keith was very thankful of the Men of League Foundation for taking the time to visit him, and stated that he was very proud to be a member of such a wonderful organisation.
