Call me pessimistic, but we have yet to turn a discard into even a serviceable player. The good players we got from other clubs were all either wanted, or wanted but were stuck behind other players.
Jacob Townsend?

Little bit different I know because we traded pick 70 something for him but he was going to be delisted from the giants.

Toby Nankervis goes alright.

He's a tiger legend and I love him. But he barely gave us half a year's worth of games all up. But his end to 17 is one for the ages.
If Gallucci had a year like Townsend did in 17 we'll be laughing all the way to the bank.

You're setting the bar way too high for what would be seen as a success. Not every player has to be a star and play 100+ games. Just play their role when asked. That's the reason why the club gets the entire playing list in circle to sing the song after our flags. Everyone plays their part.

Not saying Gallucci is going to be anything or even make the cut but you can see the merit in any of the 4 tryouts making the final list.

In any case its a free swing on a one year contract.

For what it’s worth JON did play champs for WA and was one of their best. Unfortunately he was a lot more complicated off field then the tiges could handle back then. Tambling very similar. Elite at the champs and I’m adamant with better support around him he could have made a way bigger impact!
How do you reckon Buddy would have gone as a Tiger?
