Former Brisbane Broncos great guest speaker at Kandanga
FORMER Brisbane Broncos great Shane Webcke attempts to distil his entire league career into 30 minutes as guest speaker at tomorrow night's Imbil Rural Watch March meeting.
Webcke, a former Australian test player and widely regarded at the height of his powers as one of the world's best front rowers, will reflect on his league career and life since hanging up the footy boots.
Imbil Rural Watch meeting organiser Colin Robinson said the meeting would be held at the Kandanga Hall tomorrow night with proceedings under way from 7.30pm.
"Come and meet Shane and listen to him chat about his career and life experiences," Mr Robinson said.
No registration is required to attend the meeting and rub shoulders with league royalty.
"The meeting is open to the public," Mr Robinson said.
Free light refreshments along with tea and coffee will be provided after the meeting. A raffle will also be held on the night with proceeds going to Gympie Junior Rugby League and Imbil Rural Watch.
Originally from Leyburn, Queensland, Webcke was scouted by Wayne Bennett.
Webcke tasted first grade premiership success in 1997, 1998, 2000 and 2006 with the Brisbane Broncos and famously played the 2000 grand final with a broken arm.
His career included 254 appearances for the Broncos producing 18 tries, 21 games for Queensland in State of Origin between 1998 and 2004 and 18 tests for Australia.
