Aussie legend Darren Lockyer finally on way to Craven Park
AUSSIE legend Darren Lockyer is heading to MS3 Craven Park – but won't be stepping out of retirement to join the Robins.
Lockyer, who was often linked with a big-money move to KR in recent years, will be guest speaker in the 10-5 Suite when England take on France on Saturday, November 2.
Arguably the best player to have played the game, he has won every honour Down Under at club, State of Origin and international level.
Rovers are delighted to have finally secured his services – even if only off the pitch – and are urging fans to take the chance to spend time in the company of a living league legend.

"The term legend shouldn't be used lightly and put quite simply he is one of the greatest players to have ever played the game," Rovers commercial and marketing director Andy Mowbray told the Mail.
"Darren is right up there with the very best.
"If you ask most rugby fans to choose their top 13 players from any generation, he would figure in most people's team.
"It's fantastic for the profile of the club and MS3 Craven Park as an international venue when you have legends like Darren Lockyer visiting your club.
"We had a meeting with Richard Lamb, one of the main consultants handling next year's Rugby League World Cup, and he mentioned that Darren was visiting the UK to do some promotional work for the tournament.
"When he confirmed the timing of his visit, it fitted in around England's game with France so we knew there was a chance to get him at Craven Park, and we simply had to make it happen."
Despite repeated rumours and excitement over a possible switch to Super League, Lockyear remained loyal to the Brisbane Broncos and Queensland.
"Depending on Darren's management team, I'm sure there will be opportunities, especially in the 10-5 restaurant, for photos where he will be speaking after the match."
Tickets for the evening with Lockyer are £60 plus VAT and includes a three-course meal, ticket in the west stand, souvenir match programme and car parking.
