Title: ... p64 - Memories of Gasnier @ Watersheddings 1960 - by Peter McKenna

I saw Reg Gasnier play at Watersheddings with the Kangeroos round about1960.

About 15 minutes into the game Gasnier received the ball from the standoff behind the 22metre line and with breathtaking acceleration and a slight swerve to the right knifed through the defensive line without a hand being laid upon him.

Ganley(our fullback)came across to tackle him but Gasnier put in a great sidestep to the right and Ganley missed him by about 5metres; whence he sprinted the remaining 60metres to the line.

In 55years of watching rugby I've seen many great players(Brian Bevan, Billy Boston,David Bolton, Jason Robinson, Graeme Langlands,Tom van Vollenhoven)but never anyone better than Gasnier,
(in my view the greatest player of either code ever)
