Kenny was an integral part of the Eels’ grand final gory throughout the 1980’s and played countless games for both Australia and New South Wales:

Heard that my favourite player, Brett Kenny, has been diagnosed with cancer. He's going to toy with cancer like he toyed with his opponents.— Booze Hound (@Booze__Hound) July 26, 2017
