    We need a captain that would have hurtled into Papalii on Friday night after he took Duges out.
    Then the same captain would have made sure that Papalii was targetted for the rest of the game.
    f**k the consequences he just took one of our boys out.
    FFS everyone stood around looking for the water bottle wondering what to do next. What sort of f**king power game do they think they have if they watch one of their mates get taken out and prance around like video ref lawyers afterwards?

    Well maybe they don't give a shit about Dugan since he decided to walk.

    Agree to a certain point , in as much to go and jostle with him , to let him know that we won't stand for it . That's why we need someone such as Thompson who could give the ' evil eye ' to the devil himself , but still have enough common sense to realise not to go too far , or he may end up in purgatory for the rest of his days .

    Widdop would play a far more natural game , if he did not have the responsibility of the captaincy . However its far too late in the race now to be swapping horses , something that Mary should put on his ' to do ' list in the off season .

    The captain is not necessarily the best player, he is a leader in and off the field. He has heart and always gives it his all without whinging

    "A leader must identify himself with the group, must back up the group, even at the risk of displeasing superiors. He must believe that the group wants from him a sense of approval. If this feeling prevails, production, discipline, morale will be high, and in return, you can demand the cooperation to promote the goals of the community.” Vince Lombardi

    Ben Hunt should be captain in 2018 - no doubt.

    Thompson for mine. A leader and someone not afraid to give the boys a rev up when needed(half time vs. Newy).

    I agree to Widdop not necessarily being the best captain or maybe not the most 'inspirational leader' we want. For that I'd go JDB over Thompson. Reason being he is a junior and has possibly more years left in him.

    I have no issue with the rest of your reasoning for why someone else could or should be captain except that you said Widdop doesn't have Australian heritage in your first post, but that shouldn't come into it at any point.

    Agree Overseas dragon
    I think it would free gareth up to concentrate fully on his job.
    Thommo would also talk to the refs more we need someone like that.
    The players love tommo.
    I think he is the man.
