The most natural leader should be given the job. Simple as
Pretty sure Paudi Mahony was captain in 2010 which was no bad choice.

2011 though Chris Kervick was captain and didn't play after the first game. He was joint captain though with Gavin O'Brien, so that wasn't too bad either in fairness.

Interesting read. Who sold off these rights to Sky btw? If that went to a vote at any level of whats supposed to be an amateur organisation it would have fell flat on its arse!

Roche has always played full back for this age group & mj in midfield. But postions always change about at minor grade, Austin Gleeson moving from the forwards to centre back is an example

No info on the Clare team, I know there's goals in that Waterford full forward line though. Patrick Curran isnt 100% fit so that's a bit of a worry...
