As much as i would love to see number 4 as captain, it ain't gonna happen.
The gig involves a lot of media, sponsors and community engagement. I don't think Dusty is comfortable with that and club would be well aware.

Grimes or lynch or even lambo for now before JG or Bolton or Balta take over the reigns

After Martin's 2017 season, he has done a lot of media, both after game and external media. Chalk and cheese with his confidence speaking to the media from pre 2017 to now. Way too much emphasis being out on this anyway. More likely he won't want to do it because of all the staff meetings etc in the admin role. But none of us know where his head is at right now. He may want to take that on too.

he might be an introvert and shy but heโ€™s definitely coming out of his shell. Trent doesnโ€™t do a lot of media - jack does a fair bit and takes some of the load.

If they can share the media responsibilities like they do now no reason he couldnโ€™t be the skipper.

I find it odd that we still don't know.

Surely they have done enough this preseason to hold the vote?

They havenโ€™t held their camp yet. End of this month
What's that about .. annual musical chairs!
Seriously, the camp is the perfect time to do it. Team activities with leaders of teams, all about seeing who shows leadership skills.

(Except at the Crows where it's all about complete humiliation of every player)

ya can't pick-n-choose tho. off field is part of the job spec. just let him do his thing on field. anyhoo he's had a lot to contend with off field in recent times.
Are you saying if he puts his hand up and says 'I want to be considered as a candidate for the captaincy of the RFC', you think the club, and players should say, 'Thanks, but you have too much going on -;stick to the onfield stuff'?
You may be right and the reasons you stated are why he doesn't put his hand up. But if he does, meaning he wants it - he's my choice anyway.

they don't have to "say" it they just wouldn't vote for him. jack went through that sort of thing awhile ago.

he doesn't like the media and frankly doesn't handle it all that well. my guess is it will take him sometime to feel on top of things following his fathers death. just let him play.

interesting the Vloss was the third player in past 2 weeks to throw Lynch's name up at the top of the list. Obviously internally rated very highly by the lads.

Agree on your first point. Not the second.
