Brian O’Driscoll does not believe a back should be captain.
Despite Captaining Leinster, Ireland and the Lions from 2nd centre, Brian O’Driscoll does not believe that Eddie Jones should select a player outside of the scrum half as England Captain.
O’Driscoll made the remark on BT Sports Rugby Tonight, adding that the Captain should ideally be selected from the players picked between the second row and scrum half.
While there is logic to his argument, the thought of having a mouthy scrum half captaining a team will fill some with dread.
Nonetheless, it is interesting to hear a player who spent the better part of his career leading his side from the 13 jersey say that a forward is better placed for the role.
