    The smart choice would be either Glenn or Matty Ballin but Watmough did attend the post match press conference so maybe that's a hint.

    Might make Choc switch on a bit if he has the captaincy?

    Don't really see Choc as captain. I'd go with Glenn.

    Glenn hasn't wanted to befriend the media after Brett's fallout.

    Ballin is probably the one most confident with the media and is repected by teammates. I'd say its Balling or one of the Stewart brothers

    It seems to me that Choc hasn't been playing his best ever since he didn't get the captaincy.If king is out I would give Choc a go and let him know this is his chance to show some maturity and on field leadership. He hasn't shown the way on the field ever since king and killer were given the co captaincy. This could be the chance to turn choc's attitude around.

    I'd like to see Snake but last time we had this issue (I think Killer was out and King was 18th man for origin), Gifty was named at captain but then King ended up playing.

    choc for captain.  He could haul himself off after his first drop ball or penalty.

    There is definately merrit in what you say about form ,attitude and responsability, however i feel a little uncomfortable about giving the C to someone who kinda went off the rails after a dissapointment like that. A real captain would have asked themselves, what do i need to improve to further my claims

    I have assumed i know, i dont have any knowledge of this but hey going off half cocked is a given around here

    Forget manly, forget gallop, forget inconsistency , i just dont like the idea of anyone caught do 53k over the speed limit in a position of autthority until the GROW UP and respect others. People families and lives are ruined forever by that sort of behaviour

    King should not be given his captaincy back until he shows some leadership on the field.  The 'knees up' garbage was inexcusable.  A try was lost because of it.

    It will be and should be Choc.  People want to crucify him for a few errors but he was the only one played with the required intensity and effort for 80 minutes.  IMO he would be a captain in the Toovs mould, someone who'll lead from the front.
