    It's the kiss of death. Give it to Pearce and he'll be gone in a year.

    Hard to say. If brown has a spot for sione and we plan to resign him then id say he will get it.

    Hard to say, Captain is usually an automatic selection but who is and if they are are they Captain material.
    I think the best suited to handle the position is Buhrer but not sure he will be auto selection. Think it will be between Buhrer, Sione and Barnett depending on selection.
    Ruled out new buys, young spine and DanS as they have enough to worry about

    A captain that doesn't address his team - EPIC.

    I'd go a B Smith and do a Levi, kid has leader written all over him and bloom with the C.

    Didn't consider him due to his position and working on combination with 2, 3 or 4 new spine players but I could accept it if he was given it, but for mine it's Buhrer as he has the experience.

    Why would their be any change from Buhrer and Sione remaining co captains ? I can't see Brown changing it up.

    Only thing wrong with that thinking Quinny, Sione may not be in the starting side.

    Co-Captians is just PC BS for mine. Buhrer.

    I will be shocked if Sione is not starting somewhere, he would offer very little off the bench since his not an impact player and his value as forward comes in his ability to play big minutes.

    Well be on the field big minutes maybe. I cannot see him starting in front of Buhrer, Barnett or Guerra.

    Barnett is the sleeper, not sure what type of person he is to handle captain.

    Out of left field, the Saifiti boys seem to be the sort of people who could do this.
    They are intelligent, self motivated, well spoken, and natural leaders on the field.
    They also seem to be very loyal to the club - too loyal for their own good even - because plenty of teams would roll out the red carpet for them.
    They are the same age as Sione, but Sione is a kid who has only ever done footy, and the Saifiti's did well enough at their HSC to get into Uni, and originally came to the club so they could attend Newcastle Uni.

    I'd say Fitzgibbon, who not only went to Uni, but has completed a good degree, but that guy hangs his brain on a hanger in his locker before the game.
