Hell hath no fury like an NRL legend scorned:

“Mark Gasnier is a wonderful player, but if he is so driven by money that he wants to go and play rugby union in France, I say au revoir. I just don’t think Gasnier is worth the drama.”

So writes Gorden Tallis of Mark Gasnier’s decision to play rugby union for Stade Francais. Later Gasnier responded:

“I think he’s probably a bit ill-informed, and I’ll be happy to give Gorden a phone call and explain the situation… to emphasise that it’s not about the money.”
