George Gregan arrested by French police?

During yesterday’s Constitutional Law lecture, I noticed that one of my students was quite distracted and continually fiddling with his mobile phone. I wasn’t entirely surprised, because I was talking about section 109 inconsistency, which isn’t the world’s most rivetting topic.

Nevertheless, during the half-time break I asked him what was the matter. He explained that he had just received an email from a friend saying Wallabies halfback George Gregan had been arrested by French police, and he had been searching unsuccessfully using his Internet-enabled mobile phone looking for news stories about the incident. My curiosity provoked, I did a quick Google News search as well, but also found nothing. Then Greg read his email more closely and all was revealed …

If it had been Gregan they’d have asked for his signature :)

They might have bashed Kelleher though.

Gregan has a coffee nook on the first floor of Macbank just for the employees (or he did have a couple of years ago). Occasionally he’d show up and pull coffees and sign autographs. I was amazed at his height (which is why the photo is funny I guess). He can make coffee though. Pity he lost the touch of mongrel he used to have about him on the field – part of the ageing process I suppose.

The French Police asked him to tackle a kiwi winger leaping to score a try just to prove the Gregan in the photograph is who he says he is.
