All Lodge needs to do to be forgiven by the public is get selected and put a few good games together for the blues.

Same with The Mole. He had the Broncos trying to offload Glenn.

FWIW, Badel usually pans out these days. He called Glenn being retained and Boyd being dropped as skipper. I think they would've preferred Lodge but it didn't market test well.

Boyd is the first Broncos skipper to be demoted. Corey Parker was relieved of co-captaincy, but that doesn't really count.
I got a feeling back in 1990 king Wal was axed for Geno

Sam Thaiday was demoted similarly. I feel for Darius but believe it was the right call. I really hope he can make a red hot shot without the burden of captaincy and may actually be a better player for it.
But if not his removal from the team won't be as disruptive and Glenn's consistency will have the team more settled.

Good call. Forgot all about that one.

Sam Thaiday was demoted similarly.
He was definitely encouraged to step down:


"After a long season, I came home and had a couple of lengthy chats with the coach and the coach's thoughts were that it would best for myself and the team and I play my best football when I don't have the added responsibility of being Broncos captain”

Thought the way to do this would be to hold a press conference with both Darius and Alex attending, seems kinda odd that they didn't. Wonder if Boyd is bitter about the whole thing.

He's staying away from social media so he hasn't heard yet.

Probably why he moved to brisbane. Lots of extra commitments

Touted as a future captain early in his career but he probably didn't kick on performance wise as projected and captaincy looked beyond his reach a couple years ago. I'm glad he has finally secured the role as he was certainly the best candidate in a very young squad.

I just hope his form is up to first grade standard. There were a few times last year where that definitely wasn't the case. For months he was rumoured to be heading elsewhere and nobody really protested and now he is running the show. Sign of the times, I guess.

But he does deserve the gig and I'm happy for him. Let's hope he and the club have a good season after last year's debacle. He has a mammoth task ahead of him.

“His job will also entail developing our next group of leaders in Matt Lodge, Pat Carrigan, Brodie Croft, Tevita Pangai and Payne Haas.”
Is anyone else moderately concerned that the captain of the Australian U23's side isn't in this list?..

Some telling words from Seibs there. Especially referring to the past and how things were done.
