David Gillespie Player Profile

Gillespie was the benchmark when in came to the art of tackling, whether it be for the bulldogs or Australia.

His punishing but fair defensive style often left opponents spreadeagled on the deck. He was nicknamed 'cement' I think it had something to do with the way he laid them.
