    I agree although my favourite reggie, Taga is a premiership winner too!

  1. When the going gets tough, the young players will look to all the older heads

    Yes, they will pay special attention to the C but will look to all the experienced campaigners

    @mods you know how some websites need you to make a certain amount of posts before you can start a thread?

    Honestly mate, I’ve let you go for the benefit of the doubt, but this is ridiculous.

    Not saying Boyd shouldn’t be reconsidered as captain, but to choose Oates, you’ve lost all credibility. Oates is awesome, but a captain, he is not. At least at this stage.

    He actually said Lodge should be captain, not Oates.

    Oops. I agree with him then. My bad.
     
  7. I'd love for Lodge to be captain if only to see the scum media fall over themselves with outrage articles.

    You forgot to say that also, on his performances over the last 20 odd games for the Broncos, he would be a much better option than Boyd.

    The way he’s turned his life around, both personally and professionally, and the way he gives everything he has, not to mention for over 60mins last night as a front rower, he really does seem like the perfect candidate to lead the team.

    Realistically, he is already leading the forward pack, so I’d be all for it personally.

    He’s also a pretty quiet person and doesn’t talk much
     
  11. He's my favourite player I'd love him to captain this team. If he's still with us and wants to renew I'd be wanting him as our next captain.

    it is kinda funny how the OP gets smashed for the opinion and then after one game into the new season wherein it's the same old performance, opinions begin to change.

    i don't think we have to be sycophants to support the club, it is clear Boyd has regressed and despite his seniority, is struggling to perform at the level that we need him to be. yes he's a changed man and so on - that's great, but we're a professional football club, not a therapists lounge.

    He doesn’t need to. We had a bloke captain us a little while back who was much the same, did all his talking with his actions. He’s also the same bloke who played 355 games for the club and was ultra successful.

    I don’t see it, but you always go on about Boyd being chatty on the field. Regardless, as the old expression goes, talk is cheap. Especially when you’re not backing it up with your actions.

  14. Lockyer? Didn't talk? You must be talking about Darren's brother I think. Lockyer was always screaming at the troops.

    In my opinion at least, I don’t agree.

    But it is not a matter of opinion that he didn’t talk a lot in the first few years of being captain. In fact, it was well documented that he struggled, a lot, to be the verbal leader some players required and that he felt far more comfortable leading with his actions.
