Joey Montagna told the Sunday Rub about a dreaded call from then-coach Alan Richardson that meant he was likely to be hanging up the boots.
“I walked off the ground injured, not knowing that it was my last game.”
“I’d only had 20 touches at half-time… I thought that maybe I had another year in me.”
“I had Alan Richardson ring me and say ‘G’Day Joey, I’m just in the area, might pop over.'”
“There was a reason why he wanted to pop over and say g’day.”
