Legends prove they still have the skill

FRASER Coast's best players from yesteryear finished within just one converted try against a team of former professional rugby league players.

The International Legends of League's visit to Hervey Bay culminated in a Stafford Park game jam-packed with highlights.

Brett Jones, Shane Jeffries and Dirran Knight donned the blue, red and white jerseys of the Fraser Coast All Stars as they locked horns with an Australian side which featured former NRL players Chris Walker, Reni Maitua, Ben Hannant and Scott Hill.

The Australian side ran out a 32-26 winner, but the scoreline meant little in this display of elite rugby league skill and athleticism.

The Legends' visit included speaking engage- ments at local schools and with community groups, where former stars talked about their journey, how to deal with pressure and bullying, and touched on suicide, as well as took part in fundraising activities and corporate activities.
