Turbo Tom set for return
NRL: Turbo Tom Trbojevic is set for his return to the Manly Sea Eagles this weekend.
The Sea Eagles will turn their attention to the player market with the likes of Kieran Foran and Luke Garner among potential targets as the club deals with the shock release request of Addin Fonua-Blake.
Sea Eagles officials were completely blindsided when an emotional Fonua-Blake spoke to the club on Monday and told them he wanted out of the final two years of his deal.
Fonua-Blake told the club he and his young family had a desire to quit Sydney and move closer to family.
Where did the interest in Garner come from? Clubs can’t just start targeting contracted players or is Madge actively shopping him around? Who knows what’s happening behind closed doors.
Maybe the drop in effort can be attributed to players being made aware theylre not wanted?
Maybe, but there could be a mental weakness involved if a player’s performance is negatively affected by a coach issuing a challenge to step up or ship out. Hopefully not in this case, hopefully just the second year syndrome.
