Since we heard players were told early in the year the were being cut i wonder if Garner was too but still did everything in his power to change the minds of those culling the list?

Think this bloke has a lot more upside, even for a 2-3 year block than any of the other delistees. Those couple games, or was it even only one game, can’t remember, showed how good this dude is when close to fit. Would love nothin more than him to get right, frightening footballer in every aspect when up and going.

That’s a BS BF rumour. Maj and Durdin have since said they were surprised to be cut. Williams said he figured it out for himself, as did Mase.

Despite his injury history, he has shown in the short time he was fit to be a match winner. His clutch ability is top notch. Had he been injury free, one of the absolute superstars of the competition.

TG does have a 1 year & no bullshit contract. The pressure is on him to get his focus 100% and his body right. I doubt there'll be any wriggle room if he suffers any decent setbacks.

Come on. Let’s agree. We all want this guy to succeed. Am I right? I know you agree, Snake! Screw the US election.

There's two types of North supporter.

Normal good solid people who are and always have been huge TG fans.

And the others. Snipers who are like hur hur has he done a hammy yet hur hur.

These people won't get Grand Final tickets when we finally get back there, and they will wonder why.

Absolutely. There's a reason why we've persisted with him for so long through his injuries, and that's because he's an outrageously talented footballer who can turn games in their head in the space of 15 minutes.

Let's be honest, if he had half the talent he'd probably already be off the list. But he's too good to give up on yet. He stays fit and we're a better team. It's as simple as that.

He's definitely in the best nick of his career, with a young team and the way he goes about it he looks like a serious on-field leader for mine - to state the obvious he just needs consistency

Whole team walks a bit taller when you've got blokes like this going around

We all know that the penny dropped for Luke McDonald last year and he was rewarded with a Syd.

Same thing unsurprisingly happened with his housemate TG. Is why TG got another year.

The proof is in the pudding. The way he has presented this year further indication.

I'm hoping we're going to get a Robbie Tarrant style career trajectory from here.

Aaah, mid-January. Don’t you just love it? So full of hopes and dreams. 🤣
