    Seems like a good choice. Always seems to carry himself with class off the field so I assume that is also true at training.

    Does this say that Packer has dropped his lip after ivan the dog left, or are we just going in another direction?

    He's a good choice and a sensible choice in having the captain on the field for the full 80....i can see his individual game going to another level as a result..perhaps the only choice of captain who's game would improve...or perhaps more accurately who's individual performance would not be diminished

    I reckon it should have gone to Lawrence. Moses is though a potential star player and he presents himself well. I would have had Brooks as captain over Moses as well.

    Yeah, Brooks was the first name that came to mind for me . . . but I guess that relieving him of the extra pressure/workload might have come into play. Just let him focus on his role, not add more shit for him to deal with.

    What has Brooks done to deserve being named captain? We need a leader, a winner, not a shy little boy

    Sensible long-term option considering Mbye still has a few years left here at least.

    I can't ever see Brooks as a leader. Star player maybe but not a leader.

    100% with you, let him continue (say 50% improvement) on with his game from last season, that's all the Tigers need from him at this stage.

    Of the leadership group named, Moses is a great choice, the others named, well:
    Luke Brooks - well he should be the leader of the halves, so fair enough.
    Chris Lawrence - love to see him have an injury free year but, he will lead by example.
    Benji Marshall - mentor role at best IMO.
    Russell Packer - Madge will hopefully get the best out of him and being named might just see him lift with responsibility and
    Robbie Farah - mentor role for Liddle, nothing more.

    Good pick. Glad we didn't try to put more pressure on Brooks by giving him the captaincy plus he wold have used it for me money and try letting your captain go or having talk about contract dramas in the papers. Last thing we need.

    We will probably cop a fine for this. Apparently if you confirm your captain in February who happens to have the same starting letter of both their first and last name and also that person is black then you are deemed racist and will cop $500k salary fine

    I like the choice. I like Brooks but it would be too much on his plate right now. Good call Madge!

    It's a good call because Madge is owning the side.

    Yep...I don’t have a problem with it as the club needs to head in a new direction to be successful.

    Giving Brooks captaincy would be dumb to be frank. He is still struggling to control the side in attack let alone deal with the huge on and off field responsibilities that come with the job.
    Moses is articulate, knowledgable and comfortable with the media. Good choice.
