Former Magpie, Bulldog and Steeler Kyle White has died aged just 53

Kyle White has died. The badass former forward played for three different NRL clubs before a stint in England.

Former Wests, Canterbury and Illawarra forward Kyle White has died. He was 53.

White died in his sleep at his home in Penrith on Monday night.

White’s brother Josh, also an ex-Magpie, revealed Kyle’s death on social media Tuesday night.

Josh took to Facebook in 2019 asking for help after Kyle was reported missing.

Kyle was later found homeless, wandering around the town of Warwick in southeast Queensland.

“It is with a heavy heart that I have to announce to everyone that my brother Kyle passed away this morning. As most people know he’s been dealing with some issues lately but that doesn’t make it any easier,” Josh wrote.

“He was my idol growing up and we played at the same NRL clubs and were inseparable in our younger years. Hopefully he’s at peace now and the pain has stopped.

“He was a tough player on the field and knew how to have a good time. We’ve had a lot of ups and downs over the years, but he’s my brother and (I) will

love him always.”

White played 24 games at Canterbury between 1989 and 1991, another 34 between 1992 and 1995 for the Magpies and nine games in 1996 for the Steelers.

He also played for Workington Town and Widnes in England. White is a former under-21 Bulldogs captain.

There was a wave of mourning for White on Facebook Tuesday night.
