Around the Traps: Wilso’s Whispers back in town for Beasties v Wicks

By Mark Cashman

Late nights watching the Tour de France is only adding to the excitement of anyone lucky enough to be heading to France for the World Cup later this year.

Rugby News has sent a few spies over early to do some recon for us all and we have it on good authority that the one town you can't miss during your stay is Gordes in the Luberon region.

Wedged in about 45 minutes from both Marseille and Avignon, Gordes is a hilltop village packed with cafes, bars and restaurants and surrounded by some of the best scenery in the south of France. There's also a bucketload of wineries nearby, some decent golf courses and a heap of top quality spas and resorts for the backs on the trip.

Everyone loves props doing stuff that you normally wouldn’t expect.

Well it’s safe to say that Randwick tight-head prop Cronan Gleeson has gone viral after the major role that he played in a try scored by his skipper Ben Houston against the Beasties at Woollahra last weekend.

Gleeson scurried his way into the back field midway through the first half of the Battle of the East and put on a superb right to left pass that hit the chest of Jackson Mohi who made good ground before turning it inside to Houston who stormed over under the posts.
