Sea Eagles players Daly Cherry-Evans, Marty Taupau, Brad Parker, Reuben Garrick, Lachlan Croker, Josh Schuster, Morgan Boyle, Ben Trbojevic, and Jake Trbojevic were among the 250 mourners, including NRL head of football, Graham Annesley.

The Manly coach Des Hasler, club owners Rick and Scott Penn, chief executive Stephen Humphreys, club education and wellbeing officer Matt Ballin and recruitment manager Scott Fulton were also present.

“To Keithy’s circle of friends, I say chin up, back straight, be strong. Be sad, but only for a little while. Pursue your dreams and live your best life and remember 623,” Titmuss mum Lafo said.

After the service, friends performed an impromptu Haka for Titmuss.
