Bath Rugby Captain Next Season

Experienced, hard as nails, motivating, respected by all and first name on the team sheet?
Who out of the squad that is the new coaching team gets to choose?
Is it a committee decision or does Stuart Hooper get the casting vote?

It's a tricky one because no name at the moment jumps out at you.

How about Ewells or perhaps Stooke?

Stooke for me - especially since with DA leaving you would expect him to play. Zach a close 2nd.

I would guess at Chudley though.

Brucie, if it doesn't interfere with his coaching duties.

Captain has to be nailed on starter for me. Would have Louw again but Ellis, Mercer and Underhill will be ahead of him. Think it will be Ewellsy to be honest.

If so, we're going to need a roster of match day captains to allow for breakages. I was thinking more of club captain but someone who is much more "hands on" on a match day than that position usually is. Perhaps send him on as a waterboy to emotionally rally the troops at each break in play. We already have all manner of coach waterboys for the tactical stuff.

Does it really matter in the grand scheme of things?
We obviously have no obvious leaders as this season has well and truly proved!

I agree he doesn't have to stay every game, but can be at least be first choice in his position and likely to start most games.

Whenever Bath were under the posts next to the terrace it was Stooke who was screaming at the players whilst other ‘leaders’ were watching on (including Hoops the water boy). Having said that, not sure who in the team would be best at convincing Refs to change their minds...

Stooke, Louw, Catt for me.

Will probably be a mix of Ewels, Chudley and Priestland though.

Anyone else suspect Stooke has been carrying an injury for last month or so? Suddenly dropped behind Ewels in pecking order for no particular reason having done a v honourable job on flank.

On another note - we have looked quite lightweight in scrum in recent weeks when Attwood has come off. Am worried we will miss his grunt behind front three.

Chudley or Ewels.

Stooke and Ewels should make a very good pairing in the row together. I do wonder how McNally gets on though.

It really worries me that our captain for the last few seasons, and inevitably the next, is not a nailed on starter. I get injuries but not even guaranteed a starting spot.

It'll be Garvs or Ewels with Chudley as vice-captain. Anything else would be an unnecessary disruption.

On his recent form Ewels IS a nailed on starter and has most often been captain when he has played.
