Ray Meagher AKA Alf Stewart Gives The Wallabies Coach Tips
He’s the man behind Australia’s favourite TV character, Ray Meagher aka Alf Stewart, but many won’t be aware that he was once a budding rugby star. Triple M’s Marto, Margaux and Dan host and former Wallaby Greg Martin giving everyone a history lesson on Meagher’s sporting prowess this morning.
“He had twinkles toes plus bone shuddering defence” Martin said. Before becoming a Gold Logie winning actor, Meagher was plying his trade on the rugby fields of Brisbane where he played five-eighth for the Reds including an international match against a visiting French side.
Rather than talk up his chances of winning a Silver Logie this weekend Meagher felt more comfortable giving new Wallabies coach, Eddie Jones, some tips on his team selections for this weekend’s Bledisloe Cup test against the All Blacks.
