Canberra captain Josh Hodgson has reportedly relinquished his duties of captaincy at the Raiders amid strong interest from the Brisbane Broncos.
Reports by senior journalist Brent Read suggest the 31-year-old decided to step down from his role as captain of the Green Machine close to a fortnight ago.
Speaking on NRL 360this week, Read labeled the situation as “awkward’ while also revealing a club official stated that Hodson is ‘not our captain’.
“I got a phone call just before I came on air. Josh Hodgson two weeks ago apparently told Ricky and his teammates that he was standing down as captain,” Read said.
“That ties in with a conversation I know another journalist had with a senior official at the club. He was talking to him about Josh Hodgson and apparently he said to him ‘he’s your captain’ and the official said to him ‘he’s not our captain.’
