Not sure what you're talking about.Grimes for sure imo. Deserves it and would be a great leader and ambassador for the club even for a couple of years.
As an aside can we please spell Nick Vlastuin correctly ? ( I know it’s a small issue
I reckon 50% of the time on social media his name gets spelled incorrectly.Not sure what you're talking about.
Edit: so I put an embarrassed whistling emoji in, but it's not showing up. I wonder how long I've been doing that. His name is in my phone dictionary so now it auto-fills. Probably been 2 years plus lol.
Takes a pretty special character to be an effective captain at a young age. Cotch was (and remains) a born leader capable of and willing to drive cultural change in an environment that is traditionally resistant to cultural change. And he went about it from day one. That's once in a generation stuff, and we should be wary about appointing another youngster and hoping lightning will strike twice (sorry J Graham).
I don't see another young Cotch waiting in the wings. The next-best candidates are predominantly his contemporaries, and even then there's no obvious standout.
Head says Grimes. Heart says Martin. Either way, I expect the tenure of our next captain to be shorter.
My view is that Grimes will have his hands full steering a backline with two new components, together with a re emerging Balta and a re modelled Rioli.Grimesy.
