WHO WAS ROWAN BAXTER?
Rowan Baxter was a former NRL player who once had a contract with the New Zealand Warriors.
He was a member of the President’s Selection 2005 pre-season team and spent the last 20 years of his life in the sports and fitness industry.
He grew up in Tauranga, on the North Island of New Zealand, before moving to Australia.
Baxter lived in Brisbane alongside his wife, Hannah, and three children until as recently as late last year, when the couple broke up.
The 42-year-old opened a gym, Intergr8 and CrossFit SMC in Capalaba, with his wife, but the couple closed it when they worked through their split.
Former Brisbane Broncos players Sam Thaiday and Matt Gillett are known to train in the gym.
The company website of the former athlete described him as an experienced body weight trainer for NRL and AFL teams.
Unsuspecting family and friends believed he was a loving and dedicated father.
