Gal­lop breaks the ice

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - GRAND FINAL BUZZ -

WE’RE hop­ing Mel­bourne Storm fans have fi­nally for­given for­mer NRL boss David Gal­lop for strip­ping the club of two pre­mier­ships for salary cap rort­ing.

The soc­cer boss is at­tend­ing to­day’s grand fi­nal, his first game since he was sacked by in­de­pen­dent com­mis­sion chair­man John Grant in 2012. Gal­lop will be a guest in the NRL suite.

“I am pleased to be go­ing to the game af­ter tak­ing a long break,” Gal­lop said.

“I’ve had ups and downs with both the Roost­ers and the Storm. Nick Poli­tis and I had some huge ar­gu­ments but some good laughs, too. I helped John Ri­bot and Chris Johns set up the Storm but later we had to make some tough de­ci­sions over their salary cap is­sues.”
