There was a vid of him ‘in the hot seat’ today too. Referred to his position as ‘utility forward’ which I thought was interesting.
Not inaccurate but not one of the traditional position names.

Same video.

The “need a utility on the bench” crowd will be pleased.

Should just be the full time captain. Don't get this nonsense of two half captains.

Captain
Vice Captain


Done.

I hear you... It's probably due to anticipating Dale regularly spending time out of the side and Cam getting picked for Origin... just makes it clear who's captain when one's out ; )

Everyone is a utility forward it's just that some players offer utility in the backline and halves

This is why having 4 utilities on the bench is illegal in some states

The vice captain would step up.

I get where you are coming from too.

My preference is one captain.

But if the senior playing group and coach want both those guys and think they will do a good job on it together so be it.

How much do they even cross over both being on the field anyway? Not heaps

Probably 5-10 per half. Maybe a little more in games where Cam plays 3 stints and they both end up on together for the final 10-15.

Why does the team have co-captains? In the old days there was a team captain (and a vice-captain), There was clarity who was the leader on the field. How does co-captaincy work?
Like captaincy, but there are two.

How does it not work?

If they can’t decide between them without issue who will speak to the ref or go to a presser they shouldn’t (and wouldn’t) have been made co-captains… and in general that’s probably a leadership group concern if they can’t make a pretty simple decision like that between them.

Dale is captain when he’s on, Cam is captain when he’s on. They pick someone between them when both are on.
Either or can do post game and other press stuff, they just decide as adult coworkers (and hopefully friends) something that works like “I’ll do this stupid post match, you do the next one” or “Hey Dale you’re on report for exploding an ear do you want me to do the post match to avoid questions?”, or “hey Cam you look like you made 1000 tackles and have even less teeth and face skin than usual, shall I be on camera today?”

If they are on the same page no reason it can’t work fine.

Why not just say well why doesn’t one just be VC like the old days? They could probably. Which one deserves to be VC?

doesn’t do any harm letting two guys split the off-field captaincy commitments either.

Any more than two I’m unconvinced is sensible though.

We've had co-captains since 2018 get over it
Yeah it’s that common now, not even sure it’s worth pondering why, but I will. I assume there is so much off field stuff be it media or sponsors two captains plus the hot AF number 7, are able to spread the commitments better.

Can we have co-OWB's?

We'll need to vote on that shortly... sharpen your knives, Sharks fans!
