Queensland captain Craig Moore says the inclusion of English football star Robbie Fowler to the A-League is great for the game. Fowler will play for new franchise North Queensland Fury which will raise the profile of the sport in the area according to Moore.

"Robbie Fowler is a fantastic player and a great signing for North Queensland," said Moore.

"I am sure Robbie will come out there and enjoy his time. I am sure that he will do a lot of things for our game here.

"There are a lot of regional areas that we can't get to and so somebody with his stature, and what he has achieved and done in the game, will be good to have in North Queensland. I think that is great."
