Mosman Rugby Club Remembers Michael "Doctor" Kennedy
Ms FELICITY WILSON (North Shore)
—Today I honour the life of Mosman Rugby Club legend Michael Kennedy who passed away peacefully in his sleep last month. Michael, who was known as 'Doctor', was a huge part of the Mosman Rugby family since his debut in 1974. He played 226 games, coached for 17 years and won 5 premierships in that time. Doc was on the Club's committee for 24 years and was President for 8 of those. In 1990, he was awarded Mosman Rugby Life Membership. Not only was Doc a prominent figure in the Mosman sporting community, but he was also awarded life membership of NSW Suburban Rugby in 2015. Doc was said to "epitomise all of the admirable values of grassroots rugby". He will be sorely missed by friends, family, Mosman Rugby Club and the wider rugby community. I offer my deepest condolences to Michael's sister Margaret and the whole family. He will be remembered for his tireless devotion to the sport.
