We are sad to report the sudden passing of Keith Arcus.
Keith Arcus was a regular sideline supporters of the Old Ignatians Rugby Club during the 1990s and 2000s. Keith was a great guy, a true gentleman and his big permanent smile and positive demeanor will be greatly missed.
Out thoughts and prayers go out to his children Steve, Jo & Alex, grandchildren and the extended Arcus family.

Drew was a classy 1st Grade 5/8th who represented Old Iggies in the early 1990’s. He was known for his soft hands, great passing game and deceptive footwork.
He leaves behind four great kids, Tom, Gidget, Tricksy and Evey who, along with us all, are devastated. He was truly one of life’s gentlemen.
A celebration of his life will be held
