RuggaMatrix International 020 – Pretty in Pink

Impressive … that’s what we think of Mark Gasnier after RuggaMatrix recorded a world exclusive interview with the Stade Francais back and former Australian rugby league super star.

Gasnier talks at length about his career and transition to rugby. If you thought you knew what the former St George Dragons centre was about, think again. We encountered a humble, courteous and fascinating character who is soaking up French life and enjoying the challenge of the Top 14.

Ewen McKenzie joins in the conversation late in the piece but underlines the importance of Gasnier to Stade’s championship hopes. They need just one more win to lock down a semifinal appearance.

Les Kiss reports in from New Zealand this week. He’s down under for another show before heading back to Ireland.

The Lions announcement is of course the big news of the week and Ewen McKenzie applies the blowtorch to Les Kiss about mixing his Irish lads with the Welsh. Super 14 has four rounds to go and we ask the question should the Sharks still be favourites? The panel predicts a few upsets heading into a chaotic conclusion to the round-robin stage.
