Readers recognise rugby league greats
THE QT asked readers to try and identify as many rugby league players as they could from this photo of the 1987 Queensland Origin squad.
Credit goes to Graham Vea Vea who successfully named each player (showing off his knowledge of nicknames in the process) and Craig William Taylor who only missed Greg Conescu.
Bonus points were awarded to those readers who successfully identified the photographer in the photo as former Australian politician and Lord Mayor of Brisbane, Sallyanne Atkinson.
Here's a selection of our favourite comments:
Wayne (Benny) Bennett, Tony (?) Currie, Allan (Alfie) Langer, Martin (Munster) Bella, Peter (Jacko) Jackson, Wally (King) Lewis, Dale (Roudy) Shearer, Paul (Fattie) Vautin, Trever (Axe) Gillmiester, Gary (Badge) Belcher, Greg (Turtle) Conescu, photo - Sally Anne. - Graham Vea Vea Wayne
