RIP Trevor Knight

It is with great sadness that we advise that our long time supporter and life member of the Adelaide University Rugby Union Football, Trevor Knight, passed away yesterday.

A Facebook message posted by Janice Knight is copied below. It includes details of funeral arrangements. All players and supporters of the Club, past and present, are encouraged to attend.

Our deepest sympathies are extended to Janice and the Knight family.

“Dear all,

I want to let you know that Trevor died Monday morning, just after 1.00am. Iain was with him.

He has been quite ill lately, and developed severe pneumonia on Friday. We had decided some years ago that neither of us wanted excessive intervention, and the hospital, and then Trevor’s nursing home put that plan into action. There was always someone with him, Caroline, Iain and I shared the vigil, sometimes alone and sometimes together.

For your information, the funeral will be in Adelaide on the 29th of January at 1.00pm. It will be held at the Berry & Sons Funeral home, 200 Magill Rd, Norwood and I expect we might have a drink afterwards.

For those who can’t make the journey, I hope to do something in Sydney, around the time of the Albies’ reunion.

It has been a very long, tough and emotional day. I have been lucky to have the support of my children and the good wishes of lots of our friends.

Apologies if this has come to you twice and, of course, if I have left anyone out, please pass on my message.


Janice Knight”
