Gareth took his time tp find his feet playing in the NRL. Now, he is certainly looking like one of the best buys made by any NRL team over the past few years. It would be great if he played the rest of his career for the Tigers.

Why do people rate Burgess above this guy???????????????

Ellis definitely doesn't get the wraps he deserves.

An unbelievable player. He does the work of two blokes on a football field. Does anyone know if Fox Sports are showing that Test Match he is playing in?

I'm very glad the Tigers are letting him go back to the UK to play the test match. After all he's put in for the team the last season and a half, I would've felt very sorry for him if we didn't let him go.

Vossy and Fittler just said he was the best forward in the comp, so he is getting SOME raps.

People are idiots.

As long as he keeps playing as good as he is, they can say whatever they want! :)

To think some people didn't want him here and even went as far as calling him a pillow.

FINALLY a commentator gave him a compliment.

Vossy suggested he's the best forward in the game at the moment after getting 2 MOM's from the last 3 games.

Freddy then said the last 4 weeks have been pouring rain, no wonder the pom is doing so well!

Gareth the great! I just wish someone would follow him when he runs (Daniela would be good) and be there for an offload. He's always looking for someone as he crashes through defenders.

Sterlo has given him a few compliments this year in some of our Friday night matches, and now Gus is saying that he's a real good player.

I'm with you guys, he didn't receive a lot of wraps at all especially last year and especially compared to Burgess.

It's well deserved and I think he is very happy with his decision to come out here. To me it felt like his career in England was just stalling a little bit, as if he was in a comfort zone, so full credit to the bloke to make a change and come out here.

And it looks like its having a good flow on affect with Burgess and Flanagan coming out here and maybe more to come.
Gee its grouse at hardware house!

Yeah, the bloke is by far our most consistent player. He just puts in every week
