Allan "Alfie" Langer AM is an Australian former multi-award-winning rugby league footballer of the 1980s, 90s and 2000s who works as an assistant coach for the Australian national team and Brisbane Broncos.
He was one of the pre-eminent half-backs of his era, representing Australia on several occasions and taking the record for most State of Origin appearances of any player.
Langer played most of his career as captain of the Brisbane Broncos, with whom he won the 1992 Clive Churchill Medal and Rothmans Medal, as well as four premierships and the club's player of the year award a record five times.
The Allan Langer Medal, which is the Ipswich Jets' player of the year award was named in his honour. Alfie's Bar at the Broncos Leagues Club is also named after him.
The youngest of Queensland Rail worker, Harry Langer's four sons, Allan Langer was born and raised in Ipswich, Queensland.
He grew up playing football at Ipswich's Northern Suburbs Tigers alongside brothers and future Brisbane Broncos (as well as Queensland Maroons and Australian Kangaroos) team mates Kevin and Kerrod Walters.
This combination of players would become known famously as "The Ipswich Connection". He was selected as an Australian schoolboy representative in 1982.
At 15 Langer's first job out of school was a truckie's offsider, delivering whitegoods. He then worked for the council making roads, but continued playing football.
