“Both their records speak for themselves, and Mal’s coaching. And so did Provan. I found out the other day he captain-coached four grand finals and won twelve all up.
“It’s phenomenal what those two blokes did in the game”.
Meninga and Provan could be fighting for the second spot with Dally Messenger a short-priced favourite to be inducted tonight.
Meanwhile it appears Wayne Bennett has let slip he voted for Provan as part of a secret ballot to find the next Immortals during an interview in Brisbane.
