  1. A sad day, Kev was a larger than life bloke. Great trainer and great bloke. You will be missed Rosey. Rip mate.

      1. Rosey trained the first women’s Surf Boat crew in the late 90s with his”hardio” cardio boxing drills and circuits, I was 15. Also trained my Dad’s Rugby team in the off-season. Dad said he’d never been fitter. A sad day when one of the local legends and all his old school knowledge leaves this world. He will not be forgotten.

    1. A wonderful inspiration to all who trained with him. Loved the sweat box and oil of wintergreen!Thoughts are with you all.

    1. Very sad to hear of Kevin’s passing.He was a great role model. He was willing to give up his time for fitness sessions for both myself and my son Rowan, who was inspired to continue boxing.
      Our sincere condolences to the family.
      Wayne , Phillipa and family.
