Queensland rugby league great Allan ‘Alfie’ Langer will get a statue outside of Suncorp Stadium after an announcement by the Queensland government.

Langer played 258 games for the Broncos between 1988-99 and 2002, and was one of the most dominant halfbacks of the 1990s.

The 51-year-old made 34 State of Origin appearances for Queensland, with only Cameron Smith, Johnathan Thurston and Darren Lockyer representing their state more times than Langer in the Origin arena.

Langer also played for Australia on 24 occasions.

Once immortalised in bronze, Langer will join the four statues already erected on the Suncorp Stadium concourse.

Lockyer, along with Wally Lewis, Arthur Beetson and Mal Meninga all currently have statues at the venue.

  1. They may erect the statue on Suncorp turf on the half way line as that is where he spends all his time. Opposition players have to play around him. 🙂
    On a side note to that I hope the NRL one day (wishful thinking) adopt the policy Group 6 CRL have adopted is that Yellow Shirt water runners have to administer water to a player and get off straight away, not hang around in the background giving instructions.
