As above. Talking about guys from the English Championship, Queensland Cup, etc, etc
Kieran Foran isn't exactly unheralded, but in terms of a punt at senior level, I'd make him permanent captain of the Kiwis rather than stand-in captain when Mannering isn't about.
Captaining a team from the halves is ideal given these positions are the “helm” in attack. The list of notable halves captains reads like a who's who of RL legends: (in no particular order) J.T, Stacey Jones, John Sutton, Kevin Sinfield, Todd Carney, Jamie Lyon, Scott Prince, Darren Lockyer, Brett Hodgson, Robbie Paul, Peter Sterling, Jarrod Mullen, Kurt Gidley, Terry Campese etc.
Even Benji Marshall back in the day when he could be bothered getting his jersey muddy.
Please no. Can't believe how overrated this guy is. The way that Gus Gould dribbles on about him makes me sick. He's average at best.
I agree with Muppet. Sutton is seriously over rated. He is the weakness in their team. Gould is a goose who has dribbled over SOO for far to long.
I bow to the forum's collective wisdom. We'll put a question mark next to Sutton's name as a leading halve/captain.
Maybe the Rabbitohs 2013 success is more down to Adam Reynolds, GI. Issac Luke or the brothers Burgii than leadership from the 5/8th.
