You know that mate who used to talk up his game about getting heaps of chicks, but after time after seeing him go home empty handed you stopped believing him?
It’s like Myers. He can talk so much but how can someone be a good leader if they don’t even believe in their ability? If they don’t have the weight of performances to back it up?
We have multple All-Australians in Hurley and Hooker not being recognised in the leadership group which is baffling. Both seem very level headed and both were “disappointed” they weren’t in it.
Personally I’d have Heppell, Zerrett, Hurley, Hooker, Smith & Shiel in the leadership group and even McGrath/Tippa as a younger understudy as he already inhabits these qualities. But instead we’ve plonked 3 out of the 5 who would be worrying more about getting on the park or their own form. God knows why we have Myers in the leadership group, let him worry about his form and apparently mangled hands.
