North Melbourne Kangaroos, Wayne Carey and Anthony Stevens altercation in Melbourne pub
North Melbourne greats Wayne Carey and Anthony Stevens have locked in a nasty altercation at a Melbourne pub on Saturday night.
The pair have history after Carey infamously had an affair with Stevens’ wife Kelli in 2002, which tore the club apart.
But their relationship had seemingly repaired somewhat in recent years, with the latest altercation leaving their ex-teammates stunned.

The blow-up reportedly occurred at the Railway Hotel in Melbourne’s inner west, where former Roos players had gathered to celebrate North Melbourne’s 1996 premiership reunion.
Carey allegedly started the argument, accusing Stevens of talking about him behind this back and acting two-faced when around him.
Witnesses said at one stage the pair had to be separated.
Stevens, a current board member and president of North Melbourne’s past players association, chose to not take part in the club’s motorcade around Marvel Stadium ahead of the Roos’ game against Sydney, reportedly due to his devastated reaction to the heated exchange.
