As Darth Vader would its a day long remembered we’ve seen the end of Crank and now the end of Smith
The simpleton is strong in this seat pisser...
Ok Lol. It was always going to be a selfish decision. I said he should have retired after the WC final from rep footy. I’m not pissed at him. It’s going to be even sweeter when we tear you a new one this year!
Macca isn’t a hookers arsehole and I support the Broncos. Forget my last post prediction if Macca is the rake.
It’s like Cam was a Catholic priest and since 2006 your were an alt.........nah forget that. Did the arse reaming affect you that badly? Lol
Wouldn’t that be a laugh.
Make it happen Cam.
That’s a shit list from both sides of the border. I don’t know why you’re bragging about having the best Pro!
Cook is a future immortal
Great post in a sea of shit!
Forgotten how those QLD greats couldn't do it without Cronk in 2014?
That was more to do with Jarryd Hayne, like it would have been in 2013 had he not got injured after leading NSW to victory in game 1 that year.
Thaiday has been in exquisite form in the 9 for the donkeys.
Remember how funny that was ?
Pretty much, Hunt at 9 worked for a couple of games...then teams worked it out. He's a halfback!
You do have to question the timing of the announcement, I think there may be a bit more to it.
We’ll probably never find out what though.
Next QLD captain should be Greg Inglis, the other options have too many question marks.
Matt Scott- at the end of his career
Billy Slater- ditto
Darius Boyd- would be a prospect but the timing is all wrong with his form down and his only chance of selection on the wing. I just can't see it happening.
Inglis isn't a spring chicken either at 31, but probably buys QLD time to groom a long-term successor. .
Born and breed New South Welshmen Inglis captaining Queensland.
I'm disgusted at some of what I've read here from Queensland supporters, I'm sure you were all fine until you found out, I'm sure he was a legend until you read the news.
What more do you want from a player? 42 Origins, 56 Tests and future immortal, and deservingly so.
The timing might seem odd to most but think about it. I'm sure at his age it's tough to get up week in week out and produce the quality football that he has consistently.
IMO he's had a good hard think about it, remembered how tough the Origin period is on the mind and body and decided he just doesn't want to put himself and family through it one more time. Yes, it would have been nice to see him play and hopefully finish up in a winning series and do the lap of honour, but so be it.
I applaud you Cam on what you have done for Rugby League over your career so far, especially in the representative arena, congratulations to you!!
So who do we have to fill the void? Andrew McCULLOUGH, Jake GRANVILLE, James SEGEYARO, Kurt BAPTISTE (highly doubtfull)
I just hope they pick a specialist dummy half.
Oh and I won't be surprised if Morgan has the (c) next to his name.
Separate names with a comma.
