It’s neck and neck to the semi and finals. Lets have a look at the captains.
The Koalas, Rob Schumacher: A experienced captain with loads of talent. Schumacher has a very well balanced side who are capable of going all the way. Rod has the uncanny knack of turning defence into attack in an instant. If the boat starts to rock Schumacher will rally his troops to great heights without a doubt. As a captain to take his side all the way to that coveted grand final glory, I give this bloke an 8 out of 10 star rating.
The Wallabies, Jason Honeyman: This guy is not to be underestimated who understands his players capabilities. Jason is a very good organiser who gives nothing away. Honeymans ability to read the play is quite unique. If it starts to get tight in his matches he doesn't panic he just takes it in his stride. Can Honeyman steer his side to final glory, it is quite possible, therefore I give Jason a star rating of 8 out of 10.
The Billibies, Garth Hindmarch: Hindmarch is no slouch when it comes down to the captaincy role. Garths leadership is exceptional. Not one of his players believe that he cannot take his side to winning the big one. Frustration, panic and lack of discipline is not in his vocabulary. Garth motivates his players by his whitty tactics. The Billibies are leading the competition and are looking the goods. Can Hindmarch take the big one, there only one side, that be Bullocks Possums that can spoil his party. However they are the bookies favourites and that is why I have given a star rating for Hindmarch of 9 out of 10.
The Kookaburras, Kathy Wilkinson: Wilkinson is a ‘Gutsy’ caption. Kathy is the only women in the competition that holds the captaincy role. Wilkinson will speak her mind and is one of the most respected captains in this competition. If the chips are down Wilkinson will lift her players to the highest peak. Kathy has a very good understanding of reading the play. I give Kathy a star rating of 8 out of 10.
The Possums, John Bullock: Of all the captains in this competition Bullock is the eldest of the five captains with experience to burn. He is no stranger to the captains role and has steered many teams to grand final glory. It looked like mutiny, with his side in all sorts of trouble, but Bullocks understanding of the situation kept his players together. He just has that uncanny knack of playing his trump card when you least expect it. The Possums are in equal last spot on the ladder but only two points out of a semi final spot. Well Kiwi ridden by Jim Cassidy won the 1983 Melbourne Cup from last on the corner, so I can't see why Bullocks possums can't do it. A star rating of 7 out of10. Until we meet again some sunny day. Good Hitting.
