Glad we was good enough to make the AA 40 man squad. Sort of felt disappointed he didn't get in the best 22 in the all Australian team

Seriously read this and still can’t believe it. He has worked so hard and been so persistent despite being injured every freaking year.

I would like to give a shout out to whoever helped Tabs reduce his weekly work load, which has clearly helped him stay on the park!

Was never going to be considered. Dangerfield had his spot, and media darling Dusty the other. That’s the pathetic nature of AA selectors.
Happy Ryan made it. If Dangerfield makes it then Fyfe has more claim.

Honestly Taberners goal kicking is not as big a problem as people make out. He's more accurate than most other key forwards. You just don't remember the misses from the opposition as much as you do your own players.
He definitely was a lot more prone to spraying the kick earlier in his career but he's come a long way, absolutely. No longer a liability in front of goals.

I honestly believe if he can stay fit, he'll kick 60 in a normal season. That's only provided he gets class delivery to him, and only then.

Believe so too. But that rests on Hogan and Lobb playing whole seasons. The better the forward chemistry, the more chances for Hogan and Tabs to kick multiple goals a game.

If it's a 22 or 24 games season next year. Happy for him to kick 40.

If it's a 17 or a 20 game season next year, 30 goals is realistic

Yeah poor today. Not sure whether pre-season game against the Eagles with their rebounders/intercepters is a good guide but he will need to play far better.
