North Melbourne’s Taylor Garner impressed in his return to competitive football in the VFL practice match on the weekend, while VFL-listed players Ty Leonardis and Dan Robinson were also stand-out performers.

Garner didn’t play a senior game in 2018 due to a horror run of injuries, but looked back on track to staking his claim for an AFL recall.

“Garns was really good, he looked really powerful once he got into the game,” VFL coach David Loader told North Media.

“He led up at the ball pretty well and ended up with half a dozen shots at goal which was super impressive.

"Taylor’s a very good player, and he looked better than the opposition at stages on the weekend.

“Above everything else he got through unscathed which we were really happy with.”

He did pull up sore after his last hit out, not hamstring related though, apparently the ground was as hard as a cats head. As he's seen as a vital part of our fwd six in 2019 the no risk policy was implemented.

Nothing sinister.
Thanks for the update, North Melbourne Football Club.
