Trainers give more guidance than on field captains, as evidenced with how often they spend time on the pitch.

Here's hoping that Woods pulls out a very special performance as captain, especially playing at his beloved oval...
I've been a member since 2012. We last played finals football in 2011. Just saying...

He's certain now to kick the winning field goal with the big © next to his name.

I don't see him with the personality to be a captain. Feel sorry for Halatau. Maybe i'm bias cos he's one of my all time fave players, but given what he's achieved for the club and the fact he's a club legend, i thought he would have deserved another go.

As far as the long term goes, i think Brooks is a better option than Woods to replace Farah.

He could also do a Ben Creagh and captain them from the Bench....Playing 80min is not a requirement for being named Captain....

Brooks seems to be a polite and quite young man. Not sure that the Captaincy would suit him. But that may change in years to come, if he remains at the club.

The trainers remind me of preschool teachers. Always running after the kids, talking, guiding, encouraging, yelling. :lol:

Worth noting that Lawrence has been leap frogged for the captaincy also.

Can't argue with the decision. Woods is a S.O.O and Australian rep, local junior and always leads by example on the field. Can't wait to see his big cheesy grin when he leads them out. He'll be pumped!

Well done to Woodsy. I think JT will use these opportunities to give a few of the new brigade a go at captain. Long term, I reckon Mitchell Moses will lead the team on the park!

Sorry but i just havent seen any leadership or ownership in him at all, just a knock around bloke who is talented.

Was one of two players seen laughing and joking minutes before full time after Canberra came back and destroyed us at Leichhardt last time.

The person who told me that story left after this incident in disgust, she has never left a game early, ever.

If that kind of behavior is rewarded or classed as captains material well this club is as screwed as most are saying.
