The SMH has the stomach turning news that professional passenger and former Brumby Rocky Elsom is going to be the captain of NSW next year.
New coach Michael Foley and his assistants have spent the past month in discussions with senior players to find the perfect replacement for retired skipper Phil Waugh. And after narrowing down what it was the players expected and wanted from a captain, Elsom emerged as the clear choice.
If he performs for the Waratahs like he did for the Brumbies they’re in for a rough year.
Which is just how we like it.
