This time last year I was a passionate advocate for Kennedy as captain. Instead we were lumped with Monaghan and the rest is history. Now every tom, dick and harry jumps on the bandwagon. How amused I've been to read every pre-season review from the "experts" saying how BK is so obviously the best leader in the club and the only man for the job of skipper. Too bad the club didn't listen to reason 12 months ago. :naughty: :naughty: This season I've been equally insistent that Ballin should start the season in First Grade as hooker. He won't and this may already have caused irreperable damage to our cause: 1. After a roaring pre-season it's better to give a young talent their head in the first week of competition than have them cooling their heels behind a 30 year old hack (Dunley) and a cry-baby (Monaghan). 2. The excuse that he needs development time in PL is a nonsense. That's what last year is for. The man is obviously ready and has ten times the talent and potential than Dunley. I really, really hope we don't end up losing this young fellow. He has green and gold written large all over him. The closest Dunley will ever get to green and gold is the colour of the mucous he directs at opposing players. (The same goes for Moanas).
