ComplexTableField not getting related object values

I have a complextablefield in the backend CMS. This pagetype has a has_many relation to a DataObject. This DataObject has a has_one relation to a groupID.

The idea is to display the list of objects related to the particular page (which works nicely) and also show which Group each object belongs to. I can show the GroupID but that doesn't mean much to the end user. So in an attempt to show the Group.Title I have tried accessing Group.Title but this returns an SQL error as it does not fetch the Group table. I also Tried the following...

On the RepositoryPage.php:

function getCMSFields() {
      $fields = parent::getCMSFields();
      $tablefield = new HasManyComplexTableField(
			'Name' => 'File Name',
			'FileSize' => 'File Size',
			'GroupTitle' => 'Group Restriction'
         "GBFile.MyRepositoryPageID = {$this->ID}" // Source filter (WHERE clause in SQL) 
      $tablefield->setAddTitle( 'a file' );
      $tablefield->relationAutoSetting = true;

      $fields->addFieldToTab( 'Root.Content.Files', $tablefield );
      return $fields;

And then on the object itself:

	function getGroupTitle() {
		//return $this->Group->Title();
		return "widget group";

This "should" currently return "widget group" for each row of the table but it returns nothing. It does however pickup the function is there becuase if I remove this function I get an error.

What I am missing here?
