Vale Robert McDonagh
The Sydney Roosters are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of former player Robert McDonagh.
McDonagh, Rooster #475, played 55 games for the Club between 1957 and 1961 as a front rower, most notably in the Club’s 1960 Grand Final side.
Outside of football, ‘Bob’ carved out a long-standing career as a highly respected police sergeant. He is survived by his loving wife, Dorothy.
The Sydney Roosters extend their heartfelt sympathies to the family and friends of Robert McDonagh at this time.
Phil Gould on Twitter: “Rooster #475 Robert ‘Bob’ McDonagh passed away this morning. Played 55 First Grade games 1957-61. Front Row partner of Jack Gibson 1961 GF vs St George. Highly respected Police Sargent in Campbelltown for many years. Survived by wife Dorothy. RIP” / Twitter
