Alan McIndoe (born 14 May 1964) is an Australian former rugby league footballer of the 1980s and 90s. A Queensland State of Origin and Australian international representative winger, he played club football in the New South Wales Rugby League premiership for the Illawarra Steelers, with whom he topped the League's try-scoring list in 1991, and the Penrith Panthers.[1] On 4 October 2006 McIndoe was named on the wing in a 40 Year Panthers Legends Team. The same year he was named on the wing in the Illawarra Steelers' "Team of Steel".[2]

Playing career[edit]

Coming from Emerald, Queensland, McIndoe started playing first grade football for Illawarra in 1983. He made his debut for Queensland in the 1988 State of Origin series, scoring a try in game 1 and playing in all three matches. That year he also represented Australia against a 'Rest of the World' team.[1] The following season McIndoe moved to Penrith and also played in all three matches of the 1989 State of Origin series, scoring in games 1 and 2. In the 1990 season he was, for the third consecutive year, selected for Queensland in all three games of the State of Origin before playing for the Panthers in their Grand Final loss to Canberra. He returned to Illawarra in the 1991 NSWRL season and that year took the club record for most tries in a match with 5 against the Gold Coast and went on to be the League's top try-scorer with 19. McIndoe played his final season with the Steelers in 1993.
