Keith Barnes was a wonderfully talented fullback who played 194 Premiership matches for Balmain Tigers between 1955 and 1968.

He was inducted into the NRL Hall of Fame, he was a former Kangaroos Captain, and he booted 742 goals over 14 seasons with the Tigers, earning the nickname Golden Boots.

Keith was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and a dear friend to so many.

A true gentleman, a Tigers' legend.
