The young Sea Eagles player Keith Titmuss has passed away aged 20 after he fell ill during training.

The promising star Keith Titmuss was taken from the Narrabeen training camp to Northern Beaches Hospital, before he was transferred to Royal North Shore Hospital in Sydney, where he died shortly after.

Rugby league is mourning the death of Titmuss who died suddenly on Monday.

“We are all devastated by this news,” said Sea Eagles head coach Des Hasler.

“Keith was a very popular character among the playing group. He will be sorely missed but never forgotten by the Sea Eagles.”

Titmuss played for the Sea Eagles junior teams and scored the matching-winning try in the 2017 Holden Cup final for under-20s sides.

Sea Eagles chief executive Stephen Humphreys said: “Our club sends its deepest condolences to Keith’s family and friends and will provide them with all of the support they need during this difficult period.

“We are working with the NRL’s well-being team to offer support and counselling to our playing group and staff.”

“This is devastating news. Love and thoughts to his family and friends, absolutely tragic,” Wade Graham, who has represented Australia at rugby league, wrote on social media. “Thinking of the Sea Eagles family at the moment.”

“Heartbreaking,” Wigan Warriors and former Sea Eagles player Jackson Hastings wrote on Twitter. “Praying for Keith’s family, friends & teammates. Sending love! RIP.
