Sea Eagles mourn loss of Schubert

Former Kangaroo hooker and Manly's first grand final captain Kevin Schubert has died.

Schubert passed away in Mona Vale Hospital on Tuesday night after a long illness with cancer.

Schubert played 87 first grade games with Manly from 1950 to 1954 before making a comeback for the 1956 season.

A product of the Illawarra region, Schubert toured with the 1948 Kangaroos side as a 20-year-old and played for Southern Districts, Country, NSW and Australia before joining Manly.

He played 19 Tests for Australia before being succeeded by St George's Ken Kearney. He was captain of Manly's maiden grand final appearance in 1951 under coach Ken Arthurson.

Arthurson spoke glowingly of Schubert as a player and a person.

"Kevin Schubert was one of the finest players to have worn the maroon and white but beyond that he was a wonderful person and role model for younger people."

He remained on the peninsula after he ended his football career and lived in the family home in Narrabeen for the past 54 years.

"Throughout his life he lived by the highest of standards," Arthurson said.

Schubert is survived by his wife Flois, daughters Lynette, Diane, Narelle and Lisa, son John and 13 grandchildren.

A wake for Schubert will be held in Manly Leagues Club with funeral arrangements to be announced on Thursday.
