A funeral service for NRL hero Carl Webb is being held in his hometown of Dalby, with a host of rugby league identities among the mourners.
The Queensland football icon, who played 15 matches for the Maroons as well as a solo test for the Australian side, died after a four-year battle with motor neurone disease.
Webb played prop, second-row and lock across his career that started at the Brisbane Broncos in 2000, before moving to the North Queensland Cowboys in 2005 where he played until 2010.
He then went on to play one final year in 2011 at the Parramatta Eels.
The Brisbane Broncos and the North Queensland Cowboys have announced that the 2024 Good Friday derby between the two clubs would honour Webb.
Webb died on December 21 aged 42.
In a packed room of family, friends and fans, Webb’s white casket covered in yellow sunflowers sat front and centre as the song Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Israel Kamakawiwo’le played over the loud speaker.
