Nice article about Garrick. Way down the pecking order at the Dragons and unlikely to get a game. Decides to make a fresh start and moves to Manly as an unknown. And he's killed it so far. Getting better and better each week and has become an established first grader. I had no idea who he was at the start of the season but I do now. He has a bright future ahead of himself!'I just needed change': why Garrick had to quit the Dragons

He now lives in the north, but has heard the cries from the south. They're coming from Dragons fans. They reckon Paul McGregor has spun through so many wingers this year he might as well have been operating a Lazy Susan.
And then there's a kid from Gerringong who couldn't crack it at the Red V and is now a Des Hasler diamond.
Reuben Garrick doesn't hold many grudges, and definitely not against the Dragons. He needed opportunity and needed change. He thought he wasn't going to get that at the only club he had known, which only offered him a small contract for 2019.
He left it on the table and left for Manly. St George Illawarra fans are moaning about the one that got away, a buy-of-the-year contender even the most ardent rugby league fans would have struggled to recognise at the start of the season.
