Born in Ormskirk Keanan began his rugby career with the Wigan St Patricks club before joining the Widnes Scholarship programme at the age of 14. Identifying the support of his family as the biggest influence on his career to date Keanan successfully worked his way through the Academy ranks to make his Super League debut against Hull KR in 2018. Recognised by former Academy Coach Brett Hodgson for his ability to dominate defenders and a strong work ethic the 2017 Academy Players' Player of the Year earned a contract extension to the end of 2019. Targeting a regular first team berth with the Vikings 'Kea' names his International debut for the England Academy team, against France in October 2017, and his Super League debut as his career highlights, despite breaking a leg just 7 minutes into his debut. Away from rugby the keen Everton fan also enjoys attending music festivals.
