With the announcement that Rugby will in fact start again in early October, Dundee’s 1st XV have made the announcement that they will be going with Co-Captains this year, Sam Cardosi and Keiran Scoular. Both are experienced 1st XV regulars with Sam playing at hooker and back row and Keiran from mainly fullback.
Coach Alan Brown explained the reasoning behind co-captains and was quick to recognise the contribution of departing captain Fraser McKay.
“We had thought over the off season it was time to freshing things up and pick a new captain after Fraser had a hard year with injuries not managing to play much rugby. We want to extend a big thanks to him and we hope to see him having a good injury free year and playing well.
The reason we picked Sam and Kieran was because we thought as co-captains we would get a good blend, with both helping each other through this season. Sam leading from the front as he does and Keeks providing a cooler wiser head playing at the back. Both guys a are vocal at training and have the respect of the boys.”
Good luck to Dosi and Keeks and well done to Fras for his tenure as Captain.
