Title: ... p64 - Memories of Gasnier by Steve Warnock

I missed so much of Gasnier playing live, a big regret, but as a kid I remember a game at the SCG when Saints played Balmain and I was listening to Frank Hyde call the game.

Hyde called Gasnier with the ball somewhere in the Saints 25 and he took off and went straight through the forwards and headed wide out into the backs. Hyde was beside himself "....Gasnier has run through the whole team....".

I could hear the crowd going berserk and it almost drowned out Frank's call as Gasnier scored.

Then he calmed down and said something like "I've never seen anything like that before".

They say the players of the past couldn't hack it at today's game but if Gasnier played today he would simply be the standout he was in his era. He would have adapted on raw ability and today's training methods would have put a yard on his speed and 20kg on his strength.

Same with Langlands but that's another story. All the best
