Quite a few of this current side will be spoken about in the future the way the stars of our 60’s and 70’s teams have been.

Trent has been an excellent leader and could continue to be so.
However I think he has two years to go on his contract and at this point he seems unlikely to play beyond 22.

Dusty as the best player to wear the jumper in at least the last 50 years is the obvious successor. Maybe it is time for that hand over to occur.

Not sure it's something that Dusty would seek.

There's a few other candidates - Graham, Vlas, Grimes. Jack Ross down the track?

I’d hope that Trent starts the handover this year. For longevity of captain I’d be looking at Jack, Jack Graham that is. Dusty his definite on field leader, but I don’t think he wants the extra off field stuff that comes with having the (capt) next to his name.

George Castgna has to be in the conversation.
Pure leader.
Great trainer.
Inspiration.
Game changer.
My choice would be Big V or Graham then Castagna Vice Captain.

Stiff not to get the Norm in 19.
First player too kick 0.5 in a GF.

Not sure Georgie was the first
Technically Arnold Briedis was the first to get to 0.5 in the 1977 GF - the first one
Of course he didn't finish on 0.5 as he missed his next two shots and ended up with 0.7

Mind you Georgie's didn't really matter
Briedis got his 0.7 and the team only managed a draw
