    totally agree with the gist here of letting the team decide this - we're not here to run campaigns for things we want within the club!

    Chuck Norris has the greatest Poker-Face of all time. He won the 1983 World Series of Poker, despite holding only a Joker, a Get out of Jail Free Monopoly card, a 2 of clubs, 7 of spades and a green #4 card from the game Uno.

    I totally agree Burgs, my opinion about this specific issue is that it IS a big moment in Club culture, in fact the biggest since appointing Sharpie captain at inception.

    it never hurts to let HQ know that the supporters approve of a decision Happy. We are happy with Hodgo - so make it permanent

    On the matter of Hodgo for captain and being appointed interim, an informed bloke on the roar said they wanted to give Foley the opportunity of appointing the captain, didn't want to start his tenure lumbering him with a Board appointment a la what he just came from at Tahrds. However, although Foley knew and respected Hodgo as a player he didn't know him as a person, and has been pleasantly surprised and delighted to find out what a champion man Hodgo is, how respected and admired he is amongst the players, and has absolutely no qualms about Hodgo being captain - the perfect man for the job.

    Check out p4 of the new Line Break. From The Captain Matt Hodgson. Guess that settles it.

    Just to clear things up; Hodgo is the man for the job - in my opinion. That's all. I agree 100% that it would be a great mistake to try to lobby RugbyWA on the basis of our opinions in this case.

    Got the impression he was named "interim" or "club" captain in case they needed the captaincy to lure someone over during the off season recruiting process. As I don't think that little carrot has been required (unless Alby really wanted it - but I don't think so), I'm guessing Hodgo is reasonably assured.
