Emerging Colac footballer Adam Garner is likely to earn a call-up to the senior team for tomorrow’s clash with North Shore in Tom Simpkin’s absence.
Garner notched up two senior games in 2016 before spending the majority of last year with the Geelong Falcons, featuring in the team’s TAC Cup premiership.
He has ranked among the best players in the Tigers’ reserves in the first two rounds of the season, and Colac coach Kane Leersen said he was likely to come in for Simpkin, who will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury.
“That’s one positive out of all of this is that it creates an opportunity for someone like Adam who has been playing well in the reserves,” Leersen said.
Wingman Brendan Monaghan is also in line for a call-up with Simpkin’s brother Joffy set to miss the clash with a one-game suspension for striking St Marys’ Jacob Welsh last week.
