Despite playing a vital role in Wests Tigers’ strong start to the 2014 season, Keith Galloway’s more than fine with the attention falling on other people’s shoulders — leaving him free to concentrate on doing what he does best on the field.
Having played over 170 games of first-grade across 11 seasons in the NRL, Galloway’s certainly seen both success and disappointment before, and knows that the Club's strong performances of late are down to the team playing well together, as a team.
“Yeah, that’s it, mate,” he said at this morning’s press conference after training. “We’re playing well together and that’s showing on the field.
“ It’s not about one guy doing everything — we’re going good together as a team and we’ll try and keep that going this weekend.”
Despite only playing five of the Club’s six games so far this year, Galloway currently sits second in the team (behind fellow front-row partner Aaron Woods) for total hitups — averaging more than 10 hit-ups per game and an imposing 10m per carry.
And while it’s the Club’s bench that might have plenty of people talking so far this season, it’s been that duo that’s laid the platform for the Club’s backs and halves combinations to cause havoc for opposing teams in the past few weeks.
