While all his team mates were giving 110 per cent, Gary Thomas was living a lie. To his shame, Thomas was only playing to 100 per cent of his abilities, a fact that will haunt him for the rest of his life.
"I've never been s shirker, but in that one game, when I needed to step up into a parallel universe, there was nothing there," said Thomas, who can't explain why he was unable to move beyond the physical boundaries of the third dimension.
"Normally I can go through the time space continuum and achieve 110 per cent standing on my head," he said. "But not this game."
Thomas felt dreadful only giving 100 per cent. He says he could tell his colleagues had noticed, even though they had crosses into another dimension with different laws of physics. "The lads said I done good, but I could tell they didn't mean it."
