    What a fantastic player.



  • Thanks mate.

    A champion of the club and part of probably the best squad assembled for the Wests Tigers (even taking into account the 2005 premiership winning side).

    I suggest you wouldnt be able to find a Tigers fan with a single bad word about Gaz and that is a rarity amongst our fans.

    Gareth Ellis was a gem of a player and a champion bloke!..I remember him as a nice humble man whenever he was interviewed as a player his defence was hit and stick and he ran great lines in attack…wish he had him now!



  • What a player and he also comes across as a good guy.



  • Without exception I believe he has been our best ever forward. Good luck in retirement Gareth.

    Crouching Tiger labelled Gareth Ellis a pillow…

    Very humble guy…the Gareth ARMY will long remember him…



  • One of the best line running back rowers i’ve seen. He and Marahall used to have a field day. Never forget his pass to Marshall in that Warriors game where we came back from 20 points down. Shame he didn’t spend more of his career here.

    A pillow filled with dark matter, Satan’s tears and the soul of any player he ever ran at after a flat pass from Benji.

    Anyone remember the time he lost a tooth and spat it out? I’m sure it happened and i can even picture his smile after the game but cant find anything on it via the google. maybe it didnt



  • Have you ever seen a better one on one defenfer? He makes gillett look like james maloney!



  • The best forward WT have ever had



  • In defense he would single handedly change the momentum of a set with a strong tackle that slowed play the ball right down. He could do it on the back foot against big runners too. Was incredible to watch, and we haven’t had a tackler anywhere near as good since. Priceless to have.



  • I was very sad to see him leave. A great player. Probably our clubs best ever forward

    When’s the challenge cup finali mate?



  • His football for us is embedded in my mind, can see it all right now just reading others memories

    Class act and a total professional

    Agree (that would be a good side discussion…).

    And for those who didn’t really see Ellis, he was like a hybrid Luke Lewis and Beau Scott.
