The 25-year old us under investigation for allegedly breaking a man’s nose in the popular Sydney nightspot The Golden Sheaf. An internal suspension is looming for Garner, who has only played the four games in 2019 – with his chances of solidifying a spot in North’s 22 looking shot for the season.
North released an official statement on its website: “Club is aware of an alleged incident involving Taylor Garner which occurred in Sydney on the weekend.
“The club is investigating the matter and will make no further comment at this stage.”
The club has a higher standard of behaviour required and the leadership group will meet with Garner to discuss ramifications. The Roos have seen a turn in form recently but are unlikely of claiming a finals spot at 6-8, but off-field distractions are not the priority for the bottom eight club.
Zero Hanger will keep you posted on updates on the matter as the incident fully evolves during the week.
