If that's the case, why didn't Link pull the trigger and take the captaincy from him. He did have the power as coach.
Seems like a lot of people here believe that Michael Hooper sucks eggs based on what KB (Kurtley Beale) and others are telling him. I personally think that for a young bloke thrust into the role (not sure he was reedy for it either) he has grown into the role and thought he did an amazing job last night.
He did ok in the June tests. By the time more serious cracks were evident it was into the TRC. Then he completely put his foot in it with the latest issues there was only 1 test of the series left. Probably reasonable to stick with him. I'd have put money on a new captain for the EOYT though.
