The Raiders have named Clinton Schifcofske as captain for the 2006 NRL season.

There’s also a “leadership group” that has been named, consisting of Alan Tongue, Lincoln Withers, William Zillman and “club captain” Jason Croker.

So Croker is the “club captain” and Schifcofske is the “captain”? WTF?

Yeah, come on JB and Ralph. You may find soccer boring, but lift your game.

I have actually heard a lot of people say that kimba… that vibe was the most intense they have been to…

All the matches will be played on SBS..another coup for the ‘wog’ station. Football (soccer) is the only true fully international code. Aussie Rules, League and Union can only ever dream about having the power, money and influence that the world sport has….that’s why you get bogan-type comments from people like Ralph and johnboy! I was there last Wednesday week and it was the most amazing sporting experience that I have ever had and I’ve been to many League and AFL grandfinals. You guys have good reasons to be nervous about the world code.

Wogball is as boring as bat shit. Australia will lose all three games at the world cup next year.

Oh, and most of the world cup games will probably be on the wog channel.

You’d think they would name someone with an easier name to pronounce as Captain! Poor Tommy!


FFS This is 2005 not 1975.

Yeah, Johnboy’s right.

Germany 06 will be HUGE for about a month until we get bundled out after many successive losses.

Bah, we WON the americas cup and do you see the whole family going down to watch the yacht race of a sunday arvo?

We’ll be lucky to make it out of the pool in the world cup and at the end of the day wogball is just too boring.

Both league and Union will be swamped next winter by Soccer anyway – Germany 06 will be HUGE with the Aussies having qualified…wonder if it will be on free to air (going off topic….)

eagles fan…. but more of union boy…lost interest in league

It’s a common enough thing to do – club captain is the ‘face’ of the club, captain on the field helps guide the players round the park and calls the shots although Smithy was doing it last year and will do it again in all but name this year.

AD – You an AFL fan by any chance? 🙂

Ok clubs do that when they don’t know if they have chosen the right person as captain…. redundancy plan….
My pick is for the raiders to be completely embarrasing again next season….
