You are invited to The City of Ipswich Business Luncheon on Thursday 20th June

with Wally Lewis – Overcoming Adversity

Wally Lewis enjoys the ultimate rating in rugby league – one of the greatest players of all time.

Universally recognised as ‘The King’ for his superlative displays for Queensland and Australia, Lewis has etched his name in rugby league folklore with his selection as an Immortal, induction in the Australian Sporting Hall of Fame and inclusion in the Australian Kangaroos Team of the Century as five-eighth.

But the accolades don’t finish there.

Wally Lewis played 33 Tests for the Australian Kangaroos between 1981 and 1991 and was captain from 1984 onwards. In the grand theatre of State of Origin, he played 31 times for Queensland, captaining them in all but one match. Such a dominant figure was he in Origin, he won eight man-of-the-match awards – a record still standing – twice as many as any other player in State of Origin history.

This event is proudly presented by Mylestones Employment who as you may be aware, are a profit-for-purpose organisation that provides vital support to more than 5,000 people with disabilities across Queensland and northern New South Wales.
