Captain Thunderbolt was an early bushranger (1835 - 1870) and renowned in Australian folklore. It is an historical Australian name but I accept it is a little obscure for international recognition.
I wish him all the best but I give Eddie two years and then he will be sacked. Have a look at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=040Zu9MQ0p8 for what he does when performances are not up to scratch.The English are not going to put up with someone who tells it this straight I would imagine.
Hartley as captain will only let him down. A leopard does not change its spots at that level I suspect. Its very hard to have a good set piece with only 7 forwards on the paddock
