On the 13th of November the Albion Hotel was lucky enough to host Matty Johns for couple of beers over lunch! The 1995 Rugby League World Cup winner and 1997 ARL Premiership winner regaled an intimate crowd of fans and Albion frequents with stories of his NRL career, his time in the Superleague and also his post-footy success as a professional commentator and television host. Punters got their chance to ask the former five-eighth all their pent up questions and even shared their own memories 1997 ARL Grand Final which brought the Newcastle Hunter area to grinding halt when the Knights beat Manly 22 – 16. All in all the day was a resounding success with all attendees getting a share a yarn and a beer with a sporting legend!
The next Albion Sports Lunch will feature NRL Immortal and butt of all Matty Johns’ jokes, ANDREW JOHNS!
