I want a captain who can motivate our boys on the field. This is one part of the game where we come last in the comp. Reynolds and ET for co-captains. Takes the pressure off both and would allow ET to stay the strong, reliable silent type and Reynolds to be the vocal point of the team.

I don't care who the new captain will tbh.
Co captains and leadership groups says it all for me. The game has changed to have just one person "in charge" on and off the field.

You know I thought when Woods took over from Farah that he was ideal. Local junior, SOO and Australian rep player, well respected by the playing group. "Loves" the club. I thought of him as a Wayne Pearce type of guy who would bleed for the club. How wrong was I.

Personally, I don't think that there is much difference in attitude between Moses, Woods and Tedesco tbh.
If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said a faster horse

Why does it matter?
Next year will be a year of "we need time to gel" excuses until halfway through the season when we realise we're no hope of making the 8 then "we'll be better next year with another pre-season under our belts" calls will start to appear.
It doesn't matter what players we have bought for next year we have Brooks at 7, if Brooks was the Storms halfback they'd come 13th every year, he's hopeless!!!!!! One day someone in this club will realise this, my hope is that it's not too late like it was with Benji.

It's pretty sad that from the supposed fab 4 that Brooks was the lemon were stuck with .

The fact it wasn't announced last night makes you wonder if the new captain hasn't arrived yet. If it was going to be ET like we all assume, why wouldn't they announce it when he was awarded members player of the year. Seems like a good time.

Looking forward to a new captain. We could have Fred Flintstone as our captain next year n it would be an upgrade.

It will need to be a player that makes the team every week and with a large amount of depth its hard to single to many players out that will be picked 100% next year.
