You pose another great question there Sup. Manners is more in the Luck class, no nonsense get the job done whereas I feel the introduction of Hoffman this year has seen a new leadership model emerge. Hoffman has definitely taken a load off Manners shoulders and has that leadership air around him. The youngsters must feel inspired to be playing alongside him and will all lift their games as they did with Campion and Price.While I agree with what you have said when comparing Luck to those other two.....I would very much have liked to have seen what Luck could have inspired in this team as Captain.
I don't want to kick off a Mannering Captaincy debate....there was is a thread for that somewhere.
Would it be fair to say that Mannerings style is not of the Campion / Price class either ? ( rhetorical)
Just need a hooker and a kicker now.
