Biography

St Joseph's College Hunter’s Hill product, a giant-striding winger, played for NSW in 1959 and was the season's leading point-scorer in 1960-61. Landers kicked three goals in Easts' 31-6 grand final loss to St George in 1960 and later went on to play in England with Leeds. On his return, he signed with Second Division side Penrith which was gearing up for promotion to the NSWRL. Landers was one of the Panthers' most consistent match-winners in their early years; his 158 points (6t, 70g) in 1969 was a club record which stood until broken by Greg Alexander. Landers passed away in 1996 after a short illness, aged 56.
