Greats play for mate



SOME of the biggest names in rugby league are dusting off the boots one more time to help raise funds for former Gold Coast Seagulls, South Queensland Crushers and Parramatta forward Brett Horsnell, who has been diagnosed with cancer.

The 'One More Time For A Mate' game will not only see former internationals Allan Langer, Trevor Gilmeister, Phil Daley, Graham Eadie, Dale Shearer, Chris Close, Mark Hohn, Grant Young, Wally Fullerton-Smith, Graham Mackay and Ben Ikin in action, it will also see the return of the Crushers and Gold Coast Seagulls.

The Crushers will meet the Seagulls next Saturday at Pizzey Park, Burleigh Heads with the kick off scheduled for 3pm. Entry is $10 adults, children free.

Co-organiser, former Manly and Crushers forward, John Jones said the response had been overwhelming from the players and showed the high regard in which Brett was held.

"All of Horse's former teammates and coaches have rallied to the cause and now we hope the fans will turn out in numbers not only to see some great players go around again but also see the mighty Crushers and Seagulls jumpers one more time for a mate," Jones said.

Premiership winning captain and former international Glenn Lazarus and 2003 grand final hero Scott Sattler will be touch judges on the day, with Fox Sports commentator Mark Braybrook refereeing the match.

After the game there will be a 7pm sportsman's dinner at the Tree Tops Tavern, Classic Way, Burleigh Waters. For bookings call Treetops Tavern on (07) 5593 7811.

Speakers will include Allan Langer, Trevor Gilmeister and Chris Close. Cost is $100 per head, $900 table of 10, all inclusive.

A charity auction will include an NRL match ball signed by Ricky Stuart, Brad Fittler, Steve Folkes and Steven Price on the eve of the grand final.

There will also be a signed Bulldogs and Cowboys jumper as well as a one-off Crushers Captains framed jumper signed by all the Crushers first-grade captains.
