    Would love Fitzy to be given with the C you'd have to shoot him to stop him from 20 out!

    This reminds me of a few years ago, after 2015 ended some of us including myself were suggesting Korbin being a good choice for captain after Gids' departure. How times have changed. Simple one for me, Buhrer, none of this under 24 captain bull. Appoint a new, young captain to lead us into the future in a couple years down the track.

    I would not be discounting any of the newbies , weren't they bought for their experience and leadership ? At a minimum they will form the nucleus of the Leadership team.

    2 Captains is a Crock , Who ever gets the C will have to be 80min player with the respect of the whole team and coaching staff, that will become evident after Pre season sorts the men from the boys.

    I'm expecting that Buhrer would be a fair chance of keeping his place in the run-on side, he's a fair choice and doubt anyone on the team would be against the (c) next to his name.

    In the longer term I'd be extremely surprised if Brown doesn't hand that to a younger spine player, possibly be a good cherry to help keep them at the club when suitors come knocking.

    Whether you think co captains is a good thing or not I bet that is what Brown is going to do. Sione and Buhrer for mine.

    Otherwise how about Buhrer and Levi. Levi has earned his stripes as our main hooker, and now NZ international.

    I have been hoping Danny will develop into an 80 minute rake.

    Alas with his back problems and physique can't see it happening. With less bench replacements anticipated in the next year or so, down to 6, 80 minute players will dominate the market place.

    Co-captains is a terrible idea imo. Captaincy under brown has been the kiss of death. Give it to Pat and Chanel to get them off the books 12 months early.

    Not sure how Sione can or should be captain when his spot in the starting 13 looks very shaky to say the least. He isn't a back rowers a**hole in my opinion. Just gets monstered by the bigger forwards and has a terrible tackling technique.

    Buhrer is the clear candidate to me. I thought he was very good for you guys when I initially did not think much of him.

    You obviously don't watch him very closely. He has a great technique and hardly misses when he goes low. When he rushes up trying to put a big shot on that's when it turns to shyte.

    Strange how Sione was the golden boy not long ago and now he's hated like a red haired stepchild.

    It's especially strange because he had a good year in 2017 and had a lot to do with what we did well in attack. His defence definitely needs work (for his own preservation) but he's in our starting 13 without a doubt.

    Buhrer's not assurred of a spot. Competition for spots in the back row and hooker should be hot.

    Gotta disagree with you mozza. Very ordinary 2017 for Sione and was the worst of out regular back rowers.
