Former Kangaroos premiership stars Wayne Carey and Anthony Stevens allegedly had a heated altercation at a Melbourne pub on Saturday, 20 years after falling out over Carey’s infamous affair with his teammate’s wife.
Carey’s affair with Stevens’ ex-wife Kellie stunned the footy world when they were caught in a toilet at a house party, leading to the two-time premiership captain leaving the club in disgrace.
The pair were at Yarraville’s Railway Hotel on Saturday night for a 1996 premiership reunion, when Carey ‘went at’ Stevens according to SEN’s Sam Edmunds.
Time doesn’t appear to have healed old wounds, with the former teammates allegedly needing to be separated after Carey ‘went at’ Stevens.

Stevens is now a Kangaroos board member and president of the club’s past player association, and was a key driver behind organising the event.
It included an informal catch-up at the pub on Saturday night, before the premiership players took part in a motorcade and photo opportunity before the Kangaroos game on Sunday.
