The family of former Sea Eagles player Keith Titmuss hope the coronial inquest into his death will save lives - as they pleaded with the NRL to be better educated when it comes to heat-related illness.

On the final day of evidence into Titmuss' death on Thursday, his mother Lafo Titmuss delivered an emotional address at the NSW Coroner's Court.

Her focus is for greater awareness of the dangers of heat-related illnesses for athletes, with the inquest hearing her son likely died of exertional heatstroke after he suffered a seizure during a pre-season training session at Narrabeen on Sydney's northern beaches in November of 2020. 

The 20-year-old was taken to hospital where he had a heart attack.

'We love to hear the NRL aims to prioritise heat-related injuries to the same level of importance as its spinal, cardiac and concussion policies,' Lafo Titmuss said.
