Kevin Walters is an integral part of the unit that is the Broncos. With Allan Langer retired, he now takes on the role of the chief playmaker, and the leader and role model for the younger players coming through.
Walters had the toughest of years off the field in 1997-98, but he showed his incredible internal strength to stand strong and play his heart out for the Broncos, Queensland and Australia.
Walters was a crucial member of the four premiership teams, his combination with Steve Renouf proving lethal, particularly in 1992-93.
Much maligned in the representative arena, Walters came of age in 1998, playing a vital role in Queensland's State of Origin series win and Australia's second test victory against New Zealand.
He reached the pinnacle in 1999, leading Queensland in the second State of Origin. He took over as captain of the Broncos after Langer's retirement and did well in trying circumstances as the Broncos struggled for wins.
As Walters' career winds down, he will be keen to see in the new generation and ensure the Broncos have a strong future well into the new millennium.
