A new captain post Bennett era, I believe is another positive step towards our beloved team breaking it's longest premiership drought. Most times during the 2018 season, there have been on field calls that have defied the true spirit of the Broncos expansive way of play which has netted them the coveted trophy 6 times. Frustrating it is to watch that when we have the opposition at our mercy, the captain opts to take the 2 points when clearly the halves are fuming in the background to take the quick tap. A wise captain will sense the momentum swings of a game and recognise and trust that his halves generals will execute at their best to cross the stripe and deflate the oppositions will to win. Is our current captain too safe, has he brought the seeds of doubt from his previous stints with clubs that have game plans that are more defence orientated? Our 13+ wins for last season was only 5, a worrying stat considering that we have strike offensive players littered in the backline. Bottom 8 stragglers seem to be more than a handful for our lads and we end up losing the unlosable matchups. Is our current captain displaying leadership attributes when our team is under pressure, other than; > gesturing both arms up at the ref when calls go the way of the opposition. > consistently lambast the halves when back line play breaks down > saunter up half heartedly during kick returns 5 of our titles were snared by the halfback captain (4 Langer, 1 Kev Walters), while the most recent by Lockyer at pivot. It's time we channelled our original style of play, give the captaincy to our halves - or at least in a co-captaincy with a young matured forward to re-ignite that championship team aura synonymous with the mighty Brisbane Broncos.
