Bulldogs legend a guest speaker
COFFS Coast Men Of League are up and running with their second gala function planned for Saturday, August 14, from 4pm.
Nambucca League and Sports Club is the venue selected for a celebrity dinner with Canterbury legend Chris Anderson as guest speaker.
Signed from the bush by future father-in-law Peter ‘Bullfrog’ Moore, Anderson spent 14 years in first grade with the Bulldogs, winning a premiership in 1980 and on his final club appearance in 1984.
He played eight Tests for his country along with a World Cup appearance in 1975, made two Kangaroos tours and was the first Blues player to score a State Of Origin hat-trick.
Anderson also enjoyed the rare achievement of back-to-back Challenge Cup victories with Widnes in 1974-75.
Turning to coaching after his playing career ended, premierships arrived with his beloved Bulldogs in 1995 before repeating the dose with Melbourne Storm in 1999 in only their second season as an NRL club.
Also on the guest list are former NRL and Test referee Mick Stone, and Dennis Tutty, the ex-Balmain player who became a legend of the game after taking on and beating the salary cap rules in the 1970s.
Tickets are available from the club and are $30 including a Chinese dinner.
