Loved that tackle, really set the tone for the game. Reckon it made a big big sound too when Mummy hit the deck...

His goal in the last was probably my favourite moment of the game, just the pure elation of his celebration was something else. Great game from the captain, not on the stat sheet but that's not his go any more, he's a battering ram that creates space and loose balls for his team mates to pick up.
Cotchin has a lot to answer for...

We have truly a great captain. Someone who leads by example, encourages and down to earth. No wonder the players love him. 3 cheers for Trent!

The skipper's tackle (wow!) and his goal (loved the celebration) will stay with me forever.
Captain Cotch IS a legend of RFC

Really rapt the skipper kicked that goal in the last quarter
His leaping reaction was an absolute ripper
In Captain Cotch we have a really wonderful man and a very fine leader.
Got me out of my seat that's for sure.
Every involvement was leadership personified.
On his leaping celebration, 7 had a ground level shot in slo mo with the PRE going crazy in the background with Cotch off the ground o what a feeling style. Has anyone seen a still photo of it anywhere?. reckonit would be a great one for the wall.

His interview today on Game Day was simply great.

Even the great Leigh Matthews was truly amazed at Trents last comment.

Have a break.
Come back.
Go again.
Not finished.

The fact we have become the true meaning of inclusiveness/family that the players wanted their kids in the circle before they sung the song.

From almost done as a captain in 16 to a Brownlow medalist/due premiership / dual premiership captain!

Family means a lot to Trent and so do his team mates.

His ‘blood brothers’.
It was intriguing...
The desire for a third flag was palpable. Couldn't help recalling something he said a few years back that he would be happy with one flag and maybe pack it in. Think maturity and the euphoria of victory have turned his mind!

Just saw cotchys

Preemptive retaliatory tackle on Mummy.

Gave him a bit of a Toby facial as well i reckon

And sent a very clear message.

Tracking to be the greatest leader of the club

The Big Mummy was going to go down swinging only to be slam tackled by our 80kg captain.

Laying on his back, he looks up and thinks WTF!!!! If this is what their little guys are doing, what are their big guys going to be like?

And put in a ruck performance accordingly!

On a serious note, we now find that Toby Greene's dad is in jail for head butting a female cop. Although not everyone with a dick of a dad also becomes a dick, he hasn't had the greatest start in life, and this is where Leon Cameron really lets him down. As a coach, he has an opportunity to be a real father figure and get Greene on the straight and narrow. Instead he supports Greene continually raking his hands over opponents faces and eyes, and refers to it as hard tough football.

If Toby Greene and Leon Cameron want to see hard tough football, take a look at none other than the tiger Captain. That's an example that a team can follow.

If anyone at GWS follows Toby Greene's example, then Leon Cameron has more problems than he thinks with that side, and maybe it's starting all the way at the top with the head coach.

Should open a book to see which player from another club is the first to use the term "Blood Brothers"

Another Chimp savaging on the weekend, after leading the fightback with his physicality against the Pussies.

Love the Skipper has had a dog of a year but just kept going and pushing the side.

Cotchin really is one heck of a tough player.

I just keep watching this.
Prestia in quick, the Caddy ( can see him in this extended clip) grabs Greene snot and hauls him back, hopefully giving him a throttle by stretching his jumper against his throat.
Set the scene

question: was he going for goal or popping it up for Tom? I can't decide. If Lynch had decided to go for it he would have swallowed it, but he realised he could shepherd it, leave it go through and did that.

Was going for goal, and Tommy let it through

I dunno, he didn't kick through it when he could have, poked at it to put it down Toms throat perfectly, drop it into space Tom could have jogged back into, but the way it worked out it was an easy shepherd.

He should have been pinged for running too far but, for once, the umps had a feel for the moment.

Remember that time he wanted to keep number 9 when given the captaincy instead of 17 because he wanted to make his own history?
