Footy fans enjoyed old-school footy footage from the 80s and 90s and Shearer's entertaining stories from the glory days.

In what was the perfect lead-up to game two on Sunday night, Shearer gave his qualified opinions and thoughts on the current players and how Queensland will beat the Blues.

The night was capped off with a memorabilia auction before Shearer had to test his mental muscle in a quiz against one of the punters.
