Hotheads as captains
St.Sinner 12 December, 2019 12:53

Sinckler handed captaincy for the Quins game this weekend, much like Waller with us, is it a new trend to have your most unpredictable and penalised player represent your team to the ref?

Wonder who will be first to top Harley getting red carded in a final for verbals to a ref?

Sinckler to put a slice of bread either side of the ref and eat him ?

Sometimes leadership can tame those demons.... worked with Martin Johnson who was absolute filth before becoming captain !

Oh come on, Mr Pickett - Johnson was always absolute filth - you could have made him Prime Minister and he
would still have been filth . . . .![:wor kid:]

They tried Marler too which must have been interesting

Marler actually seems to go down well with refs these days, a sense of humour goes a long way!

Pretty sure he asked a ref whether he was wearing his boots for a bet....

Cannot be absolutely sure of course but I would be extremely surprised if Dylan was actually aiming his cheat comment at Barnes.

Of course he shouldn’t have given Barnes the option of believing it was by keeping his mouth shut. So in no way do I think he was guilt free.

I don't think I'd refer to Alex as a hothead....and certainly nowhere near Sinckler/Marler/Brown
