Captain for the season


Recommended Posts

Wright was the most respected in the squad and it made perfect sense to appoint him as captain. The fact that he later lost place thru a drop in form wasn’t foreseeable at the time. Other players reacted positively to him both on and off the pitch - that would not necessarily happened if the head coach appointed the captain who didn’t have the same respect.

In fairness, I was happy with 17/18, because he played almost every game until his commitment and playing through injury cost him his WC place for Australia

I was thinking more 18/19 when he barely played.  He then got labelled club captain, which I don’t have an issue with, but I would’ve preferred a playing captain to be named.

If BW wasn’t first choice then who was?

in 18/19, Pack, Smith possibly.  They had the armband in Wright’s absence.

If I was choosing a captain it would be Taylor Moore.

He’d be my vice, behind Kalas.  He definitely has some leadership qualities.

Baker ??

On what basis ?

 

Besides being out until Xmas he's also one if the quietest ,most introverted characters in the squad

 

Does he strike you as a leader ?

He does, I think he's a strong aggressive player and I get the feeling he's well respected

I like captains in defence

I just assumed it meant - I dont want my players to find out who the captain is through a radio interview rather than hear from me first, but interesting take I hadnt thought of that. 

I forget what was said but I am pretty certain it was clear from the way he phrased that he knew but the players did not yet. What @Robboredsays is interesting and I don’t see an issue with a player vote but I am sure Holden said something that implied it was more that he had decided but not told the squad rather than that he was asking the squad to choose.

Which actually makes me wonder if it is Brunt simply for the reason that - if it was someone already at the club - I’d expect a decision much earlier in preseason but you could not have told the players who the captain was if he had only joined the evening the interview took place.

Have you chosen your permanent captain yet?

Yes, I have. I've made that decision.

Have you told the squad? 

The public will find out tomorrow; I don't want to give the team away. Obviously I don't want to say who it is as I don't want to give our opposition an idea as to who might be playing or who might not be. I've made my mind up, a while back to be honest, and you'll see tomorrow.

I’m thinking it is Brunt as well given Holden said this as the pre match press conference. In the same presser he said Kalas is playing so he wasn’t hiding him:

Or a bit of bluff, double bluff, and triple bluff 😂😂

I would not be surprised with Morrell, probably been at the club longer than most. And likes to dictate pace and play for Wales.

I would go for Kalas so we can give him a new song

Thomas Kalas is our captain and he is amazing

When he is on the pitch there is nothing that will fase him

If he takes us up we will all appraise him

Thomas  Kalas is our captain and he is amazing

I reckon Paterson is worth a cheeky outside bet for captain. 

I could have seen that but Weimann was captain over him last weekend.

I don’t think it is Brunt as he said he made his mind up awhile ago but Brunt been here a week. 
 

Think taking everything in it really only leaves Kalas or Weimann. Weimann because he was last week so leaves that possibility open and Kalas because he wasn’t here last week to be captain. 
 

Watch us all be shocked when Nagy walks out with it 🤣

"Appraise him"?

As in - decide if he's any good after all?
