Lit­tle Gen­eral stops in

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL SPORT - ❏ Bran­don Livesay

STAND­ING on the side­lines and drink­ing a tin­nie, Al­lan Langer looked at home in Gayn­dah.

The Lit­tle Gen­eral was in town to watch the Gla­di­a­tors take on the Eidsvold Ea­gles.

And the crowd made the most of hav­ing rugby league roy­alty in their midst, with ev­ery­one ea­ger to have their photo taken.

Langer ca­su­ally cir­cu­lated among the lo­cal fans, stop­ping to have a yarn and sign shirts.

“You’re a bloody le­gend,” Adrian Priest told Langer as he grabbed him around the shoul­ders for a photo.

Un­for­tu­nately for the Gla­di­a­tors, Langer’s pres­ence did not help them get a win.

But Langer said he en­joyed watch­ing the grass­roots footy.

“It was a tough game,” Langer said.

He con­grat­u­lated the Eidsvold play­ers for their per­for­mance, and en­cour­aged the Gla­di­a­tors for their grit. Af­ter the game, Langer headed to the Golden Or­ange Ho­tel to en­joy a beer and bar­be­cue with the lo­cal pun­ters.
