    Is John Palavi the future Warriors Captain. Ticks a lot of boxes for me. Has just got to get it done on the field in FG. Promising young forward and very hardworking young man.

    He has been there for the juniors.
    Just needs to get established as a first grade player at this moment.

    Has that aura about him.

    Not worth a thread.

    Palavi has been given a shot - he could of easily faded away after recent season.
    He is still only very young - but been on the books for some time.

    My biggest questions is what type of forward is he?

    Probably two short to be a prop-not quite enough pace for edge forward.
    Not fit enough for a workhorse.

    Characterwise he seems to be of substance.

    Goodluck to him for his debut.

    He looks good. Hopefully he has a strong debut this weekend, but.....

    i would like to see him establish himself in first grade first. A lot of people were saying the same thing about Elijah Taylor. A lot can change in 2-3 years.

    If he's the future, future warriors captain, let me put this out there. If we can't keep Tomkins more than 3 years, surely we'd be able to keep Townsend. Johnson and Townsend to be co captains within the next 4 years,. Then Palavi to take over after them.

    I used to think Ben Henry will most likely get there ahead of him but either of them will be good future captains.

    Mannering is still only 27, in 3 or 4 years time I reckon it'll be co-captains Johnson and one of the forwards, but has to an automatic selection, dunno if palavi or Henry would qualify.

    I reckon Mannering has another six years of captaincy remaining.

    Sorry to be a kill joy but I don't see what all the fuss is about tbh.
