Front row position for Anzac Test

HE is a Warwick boy through and through – but tonight Adam Fisher will run on for the Australian Army, as part of the Anzac Day Test at Skilled Park on the Gold Coast.

The 23-year-old rugby league forward, who last year played A grade for the Warwick Cowboys, secured a spot in the national army side this season.

Yesterday, the Sydney-based private said the curtain-raiser game against the Australian Navy would be tough.

“We went down to the navy by two points a few weeks ago, so we are looking for a win,” Fisher said.

He said training with the Titans this week and playing in front of a capacity crowd ahead of the Australia versus New Zealand test match would be “motivational”.

But there is yet another reason for the former Assumption College student, who runs on as lock tonight, to be lining up some hard hits.

“My mum Chris and my grandmother Beryl Cullen will be in the crowd and that’s always pretty special,” Fisher said. “I don’t think my mum has ever missed a game.”

Fisher started with Collegians and made the Mustang’s representative side before going on to play A grade. Tonight he is tipping the Australians to win the test title against the Kiwis.

“There are a lot of Queenslanders in the team, so that should give them an edge.”

The Australian Army vs Navy game starts at 5.30pm. The Test match at 8pm.
