A HOST of rugby league's biggest names have turned out for the funeral service of St George legend Graeme Langlands on Monday.

 

The likes of Steve Mortimer, Bob McCarthy and Mick Cronin were among the hundreds who were present at Woronora Memorial Park in Sydney's south, along with former Dragons stars Craig Young, Mark Coyne, Graeme Wynn, Ben Hornby, Dean Young and Paul McGregor.
