"He was a player I looked up to as a kid, I drew inspiration from Alfie," Slater said.

"He was so small and courageous. That's what I wanted to emulate. He showed that it was possible for the small kids.

"I dreamt of being Allan Langer running around the backyard, kicking the footy and scoring tries."

Those childhood memories will come flooding back when Slater leads Queensland out for the first and final time on Wednesday.
