"Perhaps it would be better that future criticism of sports be made on the narrow basis of what is being discussed, without reference to other sports, unless those sports offer a solution to the problem in hand." - Brian 'Pigface' Moore
"What happens in rugby union? A player takes the ball, moves forward a little and gets tackled. A whole load of players then roll about on the ground. Pheep! The referee gives a penalty." - Simon Barnes

I remember him having trials with the Broncos, as has already been said, he had positive stuff to say about his experiences there.
At about the same time IIRC, he had an appearance on "Question of Sport". I seem to remember watching it in case any reference was made to his RL efforts. When the first round "Picture Board" started and it was his go, he chose a certain number and, when it was revealed, the picture was an ice skater or summat like. He started laughing and said he'd been set up. Turns out a cameraman told him to pick that number as it was a boxer and he'd know who it was. Bill Beaumont suggested the cameraman ought perhaps to do a runner.
Gary Mason came across as a genial giant, a very nice guy.
