Reg GasnierPrint Page
Statue commemorates rugby league player Reg Gasnier.
In a magnificent playing career spanning 1958-1967, Gasnier achieved every possible honour. Apart from his outstanding playing record, Gasnier was an inspiration to team mates and to young fans who marveled at his skill. He balanced his ability with a warm humility and a generous spirit.
Possessing blistering pace, a deceptive swerve and gifted attacking vision, Gasnier was a try scoring machine with an astonishing strike rate. In 127 games for St George, he crossed for 130 tries. In 39 Test matches for Australia, he scored 28 tries. He was regarded as the "Prince of Centres".
