Well if Manly want Garner, and he is under contract for another 2 years…what are manly going to give us in return?? Considering they have stated when AFB goes they aren’t paying a cent…time some clubs started to grow some minerals when it comes to helping other clubs out

We don’t owe anybody anything so as long as the club plays hardball for our own benefit…then hallelujah!!!

Imagine willingly helping the scummy seabirds😠

If you want it Des, you gotta pay for it. No freebies mateefence

Garner had that word about him POTENTIAL sadly I dont think he’s taken the next step this year his defence has been ordinary and if he was to be released I dont think we would miss him with the young guys coming through and if it frees up cap space even better

I think the reason these blokes with potential or good players at our club leave - or want out, is because we (for some reason or other) are not making finals footy- unless you are an out and out Wests Tiger-you wouldn’t want to stay, everyone wants to be a winner, and we are not that…yet - I’m not sure why😠

At worst he’s good depth considering the injury toll across the league.

For sure let him go, but our backrower stocks coming through the grades is nothing special. We’d need a ready made replacement before releasing him.

No point weakening our roster and strengthening another clubs. Especially scummy manly

If Manly want Garner then WT need a reliable replacement. How about Sironen? How about all the Sironens?

Don’t you think Paul’s a bit old😺😺😺😺

Hahaha…to play maybe, but club loyalty has no expiry date. A pity more wasn’t done to bring together the old Balmain and magpies players to show some leadership during the change process. Now we have club greats hoping other teams win.

They’d revert back to the pillows they were before leaving us.
Don’t know why but pillow forwards is a requiirement for us in recent years. The old Wests and Tigers forwards must be turning in their graves the way our guys generally don’t put their bodies on the line. - loved Sheens but that’s his forward legacy.

Agree mikey, at times it does seem as though there’s an invisible brick wall that only they can see.

Unfortunately there is no space in first grade for Garner next year. I like him and he has talent but it’s game over.

Why is it “game over”? Why can’t he be coached to improve here?

If he has the deficiencies you believe, why would Hasler want him? If it’s true, and I hope it’s not, surely it’s because Manly sees potential to improve him?

So, why can’t that happen here?

TT, I don’t think Garner fits Madge’s type of 2nd rower, thats all. Just an opinion. He can continue to improve and play NRL but I personally think it will be at another club.

So this young second row giant from the Cowboys will replace him?

Who is that?

A huge 18 year old Kiwi second row forward at 6ft 4 and 104kgs. T. Simpkins if my memory is correct. There was mention of him in this thread.

He looks a beast of a kid, if he comes over, then our forwards stocks look impressive don’t they.

There’s been something smelly about Garner all year, I wouldn’t be surprised if we cut him from the last year of his contract.

Proctor re-signed with Titans, i was actually hoping he would be able to come in our squad, even though most people here dislike him.

Simpkins was signed by the Cowboys after being spotted at the 2016 New Zealand under 15s Rugby League National Championships.

A 6’4, 17-year-old back-rower, Simpkins was one of the top schoolboy rugby union prospects in New Zealand and attracted the interest of a number of Super Rugby franchises before ultimately opting to sign for the Cowboys.

We will need a replacement if we let Garner go. We are short on second rowers next season as it is.

I would imagine this all about getting a roster vacancy for a incoming player and is all being organised the players management. So if Garner is going, I am sure is replacement coming. It’s the way these things usually pan out

Didn’t we extend Garner through 2022!?..

And all this offloading talk has come about because of 1 vague article which says Manly scum MAY be interested.
Sounds like the author put 2 & 2 together because Garner is good mates with the Turbo family.

Tuki Simpkins was in discussions with us over a move for next year, this was confirmed by The POM.

I mean, Garner for Simpkins makes sense providing Blore nails down that position on the right edge. I’ve got no concerns over his ability, just his fitness, but hopefully pre-season will change that.
