Queensland legend Allan Langer will keep his coaching gig with the Maroons State of Origin team following his drink-driving charge.Queensland Rugby League managing director Ross Livermore and Maroons coach Mal Meninga say the former Kangaroos Test halfback has suffered enough.
Langer was busted with an alleged blood alcohol level of .15 when he was breath tested leaving a pub after the Broncos 48-16 loss to the New Zealand Warriors at Suncorp Stadium.
The former Bronco suffered further embarrassment when a picture of him dancing on a table in his undies earlier that night were published by the Courier Mail.
"How many times must Alfie be punished?" Livermore said. "He's lost his job as an ambassador for XXXX, he has been suspended by the Broncos from his role as a skills coach and has to front the court.
"It's not as if he is the head coach of the Origin side. It's my view that he should continue in his role with the Queensland team and I would be surprised if the board does not support that view.
Langer will appear in court on Monday week.
The Queensland team for Origin I will be named on May 18.
Origin I will be played in Sydney on May 26.
