I think Reynolds will be a masterstroke from Cleary. Reynolds is probably thinking that he was going to play for dogs whole career so making him captain might make him feel that he really loves our club and it may rub out some of his poorer games.
Also having an enthusiastic outsider as captain shows team no more jobs for the boys.
Hit the nail on the head there, like Civoniceva at Penrith all those years ago. Before Cleary's time, but that kind of signing.

Did someone mention Curtis Rona coming? Now that's one I'd support as a signing (maybe not a winger as captain, only Chris Anderson or old mate Luke Covell could barely pull that one off)

I'd go Lawrence/Taylor in combination. Both are level headed motivators the speak well.

I doubt Reynolds will be the captain next year. It'd be too much pressure for a high profile recruit to come in and be captain as well. However I imagine he'll be captain in 2019
Year of last finals appearance:
2017 - Storm, Roosters, Broncos, Eels, Sharks, Sea Eagles, Panthers, Cowboys
2016 - Raiders, Bulldogs, Titans
2015 - Rabbitohs, Dragons
2013 - Knights
2011 - Tigers, Warriors

Has to be ET, maybe Reynolds after a year or two if he matures a bit and performs well.

Lawrence should carry the C. There is a lot more to being the captain than inspiring the troops, these days a lot of it revolves around media obligations, referee management etc.

Given Lawrence's injury history, suggest that ET would be back-up/co captain, but there would also need to be other that make up the leadership group including the 2 above, Reynolds, Matulino, Nofa and Lovett.
Lovett?
Would bring a whole new meaning to the "Captain's Run".

Lawrence is signed for next year so can't be 'let go'.

Co-captains Reynolds & ET. ET to speak to refs and media, Reynolds to inspire the team and come up with big plays.

Leadership group: Nofoaluma, Reynolds, Lawrence, ET, Matulino, McQueen, Eisenhuth, Brooks, Suli
I will support Wests Tigers through thick or thin
I will be cheering when they win
I will love the Tigers Till I Die
With loyal supporters we will fly
I love the Tigers with my heart and soul
I just love the club as a whole
If the Wests Tigers believe
We will Unite, Commit and Achieve

I think Reynolds will have enough on his plate without the (C)...people seem to think everything will fit together perfectly like a jigsaw...I expect quite a few teething problems with so many new players arriving...let him worry about running the team on the park as all 6's and 7's do.
Comparing him to Petero is just wrong too...I dont see the calmness & maturity in Reynolds that Petero displayed...I see it in Rowdy & ET

Of course it will be a slow process. Could take 6 to 8 weeks before they gel. Fingers crossed they win enough games to not be totally out of the hunt. Just as long as we smash the Dogs in round 1.

Rowdy for me. Even though he is not what Jadtiger needs.

It's what Wests Tigers need.

What i want is someone to be captain who is a "must" selection.Lawrence is not a "must" selection.Our 2nd row is the worst in the comp we need that to be improved Lawrence is a club stalwart but not a first grade backrow player
