Having the c next to Maloneys name could be the best thing to happen to him.
The only problem with that is I don't think Maloney has the respect of his teammates, not enough to be a captain anyway. Judging from what I've heard round the traps, most think he's a right pain in the arse. Not a bad chap by any stretch, but one of those guys who just won't keep their mouth shout. It's a good attribute to have as a half, but as a captain it's not in the amount of words you say but the quality...more I think about it, the more I think Maloney. Luck is probably the obvious choice and he probably deserves it but I feel like the captaincy could only add to Maloneys game. The only argument so far is hes a bit hot headed with the refs, but as captain he would be allowed a bit of leeway in that regard. Hes in a position to lead the team and is already one of very few members who are prepared to speak up in front of the team in these team huddles. Maloney and Luck do all the talking, they are the options we have.
