I must apologise in advance, this is a very sappy, self indulgent post. I am just so proud.
After 11 months sidelined by a hamstring injury it was the first game back. It was the most incredibly exciting, nerve-wracking and proud moment. I was just over the moon. I think he was too. While today he is sore and exhausted, it’s a moment I think he will hold onto, the pain is a reminder. On top of getting through the game and playing a great one, he got a fantastic pack mark which he then slotted through for a goal, only his 15th in his 134 game career (this isn’t that surprising considering is has played the majority of those games in the backline).

Lewie inspires me. He makes me want to be the best version of myself. Throughout the last year, he’s been so strong and showed courage he could have fallen apart. This display makes me realise I can do anything, we can do anything together. We are strong together than we are alone.
Lew, I am so proud of you. I love you more than I can tell you and I will always be here for you. The result you achieved last night is testament to all your hard work and your incredible character.
