Former Aussie league stars visiting Queenstown


Two Australian rugby league legends are visiting Queenstown this week.

Former internationals Brad Fittler and Greg Alexander were spotted dining at the popular Lone Star Cafe and Bar last night (Tuesday).

Fittler, 40, captained both New South Wales and Australia and played 119 games for the Penrith Panthers and 217 for the Sydney Roosters.

Fittler was in the Panthers team that won the premiership title in 1991 – his captain was Alexander.

Alexander, 47, also played for New South Wales and Australia and played 227 games for the Panthers and 37 for the Auckland Warriors.

Fittler is a coach nowadays and Alexander is a prominent commentator and writer on the sport.
