No snags in Alfie's game

WHILE Queensland assistant coach Allan Langer was in Maroons HQ in Melbourne getting ready for last night's game, his mum Rita Langer was busy grooming the next batch of Ipswich rugby league legends.

Alongside the other tuckshop ladies at Blair State School Rita spent the day serving children and reminiscing on Alfie's playing career.

"His first game (in 1987) well when no one wanted him on the team sticks out," Rita said.

"And that field goal he kicked to even the series in 1992," she said.
