Former NRL star Dave Taylor might not be playing in the professional ranks anymore, but that hasn’t stopped him having a run for the Central Queensland Highlands All Stars against the Australian Team of NRL Legends.
The Australian Legends of League contest took place at Hinrick’s Oval in Blackwater on Saturday night.
The contest saw the likes of Queensland great Petero Civoniceva as well as former Queensland representative and former CQ Capras second rower Taylor lace up the boots.

The 32-year-old, who last played in the NRL with the Raiders back in 2017 was captured going for a chip and chase off a quick tap.
“Quick scoot Dave!” yelled a fan from the sideline, before Taylor obliged and chipped over the top only to be tackled by Civoniceva before he got the chance to regather.
Taylor finished his career with 42 tries in 181 games for the Broncos, Rabbitohs, Titans and Raiders since his debut in 2006.
The man they call the ‘Coal Train’ also played eight Origins for the Maroons, one Test for the Kangaroos and three games for the NRL All Stars in his career.
