Stocker, Maurive, Mick Cunningham, Tom and Keano, fortunate to have loads of great clubmen
Who is your most confident team-mate?
Gotsche – so confident he doesn’t feel the need to track back
Who is the worst dressed in the panel?
To echo the previous surveyors and everyone who has ever met him, Brian Ross is the worst dressed person to ever walk the face of the earth. Hate to see what he’d wear if he was around in the Renaissance
Who is the worst trainer in the tcg panel?
Gary Mcgee is a contender. He’s got his watch set to New York time
Who is the biggest joker?
Mossy Cribben never lets a comment go without getting a sneer at it
If tcg were to start a boy band who would be in it?
Obviously Marty(the gay one), myself (the creative one), Gaz Mcgee (the one who no-one can understand), Benny (the ageing rockstar) and of course Mitchel (the injured one)
Definitely not in it?
Mick Mullins is a bit raw for it and Rossy just didn’t fit the looks quota
Which player on the tcg team always seems to be on the injured list?
I wanna say Mitchel but I have to be a contender myself. Collins likes the physio room aswell even if its just for a cup of tea and a chat. Rossy just likes Kate

Duddy thinks he’s absolutely deadly looking. And of course Gary and Barry are worse than Jedward
If you could make up an award for any player on team, what would it be? and who would get it?
“Who got flattened in training the most award”…… If memory serves me right, Luke Kavanagh must be a contender here. Both Darren and Johny Mc flattened him in training
