Hand Lawrence the armband

COMMENT: A business community that is simply the best

It's time Liam Lawrence took over the captaincy from Aaron Mokoena.

For me, Mokoena and Sonko are not forming a good enough partnership – it's not consistent.

I thought Mokoena made a ridiculous challenge to get a booking and he will now be suspended again after getting his 10th booking of the season.

He had players covering him, there was no real danger and it was needless to go sliding in from behind.

Now he's suspended, I'd like to see the captaincy go to Lawrence and I'd be more than happy for him to retain it when Mokoena is back.

Mokoena needs to get back to being a defender and doing his job correctly.

Lawrence gives you consistently good performances and he dishes out encouragement and kicks people up the backside at the right time.

As a captain, you have responsibility. If you are making mistakes yourself, it's difficult to dish out stick to others.
