100% yes.I agree our record has slipped since he became captain but I’m going to spin it a different way.
I was very surprised when he was appointed sole captain, not that I didn’t think he wasn’t up to the job, but rather that we abandoned the multiple captains system that has worked so well for us since Maxfield stepped down mid 2005.
It may be only a simple thing such as sharing the off field responsibilities that lightens their load and allows a greater concentration on their on field performance.
At the time I thought Hanners would have made a fine co-captain but with his recent injury struggles this isn’t likely.
We will have to start considering the next batch including Rampe and Parker if we decide to revert to co-captaincy.
This was an error. I believe that we even should have kept one of Jack or Macca on for one more year as co captain to help the guy out. The Luke Parker or Ramps could have co captained with him until he was ready to pass the batten to have both Parker & Rampe. It has worked very well Grim as you say & should still be in place.
