I hope your whispers are true, it would do both Robbie and the team well if he was relieved of the captaincy. I'd replace him with Blair.

It would not surprise to see Farah stripped of the C next to his name.

Since laying off the initial Braith bashing (when I thought cock should have formed part of his username) a bit, the chookman has made a good contribution to the forum.

He's the only other choice really. People will say Woods, but i don't really see it in him tbh. Lawrence was being groomed a few yrs ago, and might already be Captain, but his injury killed that chance, as he's lucky to even be in the side, let alone lead it. I think the Captaincy can really bring the best out in Blair.

Roosterman's Braith bashing's aren't any worse than what the majority said about him over the last 2 yrs, but typically, no one else is allowed to have an opinion bar Wests Tigers fans. Taylor already stated at his first press conference that Farah will lead the side, so i'll take him at his word. I don't care either way though.

Pretty confident robbie will be captain in 2015, Taylor stated this clearly in his latest presser.

Blair may be another option but if not robbie id prefer we go with a long term option. Does anyone know if Brooks or Moses have captained sides before? Or maybe cherrington will take over after robbie?

Not next year no, potentially after Robbie retires.

Another 3 or 4 yrs and Brooks could be ready to lead, you never know. If Farah is stripped (he won't) i'd seriously run with Blair. The conniption that would follow from supporters would be amazing to witness. It would almost be worth it happening for that reason alone.

Yeah spot on, GNR. Blair has a heap of top level experience - he is a long term international and was once VC of the Kiwi side, he is going great guns in the current 4 Nations Tournament and he has earned the respect of everyone at the club. He has also been a great mentor to the many young Islander/Kiwi players that we have in the squad - it's a no brainer for me.

Maybe Richards? I think long term that Tedesco is more captaincy material than Brooks and Moses. He's level headed, can speak well, is confident but not obnoxious and brash like Moses.

How am i a troll? a troll is someone who goes around causing trouble and tries to piss people off etc, If you get pissed because im a roosters fan that is YOUR problem...not mine so don't blame me for that, Any criticism i have ever made on this forum i have backed it up with a thoughtful opinion...i stand by that and you can feel free to look back at any of my posts and find me a time i have said anything to insult anyone on this forum!...im tired of being called a troll purely for the fact im a roosters fan, if you cant look past that you need to do some growing up.

Well I have heard exactly the opposite and the reason that Nathan Brown wasn't considered for the WT's job was because he WAS going to sack Farah as captain

I recall the same. Taylor directly stated his intention to keep Farah as the captain.

"Reliable whispers" from a reliable source? In the unlikely event the whisper is true, the only possible initial source is Taylor himself. I can't see that Taylor would have anything to gain by letting whispers of this nature out in the infancy of his new career as head coach. If the whisper is sourced from a discussion Taylor has had with another member of the coaching staff then presumably that staff member's days are numbered.

The fact that you suggested we bring back bwaith to captain the side, demonstrates troll traits within your post. Perhaps if you didn't consistently have to reference him in the majority of your posts we would probably take you a little more seriously. It doesn't help that your post is information which is the complete opposite to what is being said from the best source - the coach !

I really wouldn't be surprised if you've just totally fabricated the whole story so you have a reason to mention your love child again. Isn't it funny how you only became interested in the wests tigers and our forum once braith joined our club, even after his left you still can't help yourself. Quite the coincidence..

But if your story is true, then i'd hope Blair would be Robbies replacement.
