    Origin legend fined after Porsche crash
    September 15, 2010 - 2:57PM

    State of Origin rugby league legend Dale Shearer has been fined $1000 and banned from driving for a year for drink-driving after a crash that almost killed him.

    Shearer on Wednesday faced Noosa Magistrates Court where he pleaded guilty to the charge.

    The 44-year-old Australian and Origin star crashed and rolled his four-wheel-drive Porsche at Peregian Springs, on the Sunshine Coast, late on February 21 last year.

    He spent months in hospital with neck and abdominal injuries, forced to communicate with family members by winking.

    Police took blood samples following the crash to determine whether alcohol was a factor.

    Shearer played 20 Tests for Australia and 26 State of Origin matches for Queensland.

    Good effort too. I saw the roundabout the following morning, and he launched that porshe fair into the middle of it.

    What's up with that Isz - are you thinking that we might be able to use him as backline cover for next year?

    He's lucky to still be alive from the images I saw (lucky to be in the vehicle that he was in), plus Jatz reckons it's no mean feat to end up where he did so he would have been absolutely 'flying'. Dumb but fortunately lucky for him and family.
