The Queensland Rugby community is mourning the loss of Queensland player #613 and Queensland Rugby Union Life Member Kevin Crowe.

Born in New Farm in 1927, Crowe played for Queensland three times in 1951 as a flyhalf against New South Wales.

Upon finishing his playing career, Crowe moved into the referee ranks and would go on to officiate over 600 games of Rugby, including 22 Test matches.

Crowe served as President of the Queensland Rugby Referees Association between 1974-1976 and was awarded Life Membership of the QRRA in 1997, before being announced as a QRU Life Member in 1997.

Crowe was awarded an Order of Australia in 2004 in recognition of his services to Rugby across Queensland.

Funeral arrangements will be announced when they come available.
