Join us for an unforgettable afternoon of rugby league legends, laughter, and great company. This annual lunch, hosted by Queensland Rugby League great Alfie, promises to be an event like no other. Get ready to indulge in mouthwatering food, refreshing beverages, and be entertained by our lineup of incredible guests.

Prepare to have your funny bone tickled by the hilarious Des Dowling, a renowned comedian performer who knows how to keep the crowd in stitches. His comedic genius will leave you laughing long after the event ends.

But the entertainment doesn't stop there. We are thrilled to announce that Gordon Tallis and Steve 'Blocker' Roach, two iconic figures in the world of rugby league, will be joining us as guest speakers. These legends of the game will share their captivating stories, insights, and experiences, offering you a unique glimpse into the Origin and rugby league at the highest level.

To ensure the smooth flow of the event, we have none other than Greg Ritchie as our esteemed MC. With his wit, charm, and impeccable hosting skills, Greg will keep the atmosphere lively and engaging throughout the lunch.

Gather your friends, colleagues, or fellow rugby league tragics and join us at the Banana Bender Pub for Alfie's Origin Bender. This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to celebrate the sport, relish great food and drinks, and connect with fellow footy fans and legends of the game.
