Oh Captain My Captain

New Season and a new captain at Mayfield. Allow us to introduce you to our new skip.
Name: Duncan Leese
Position: Fly Half, Centre, Utility Back
DOB – 13/05/96
Started playing rugby for High School of Dundee aged 10, before going on to play for the Eagle’s
DR: What does it mean to be club captain and what are your aspirations?
DL:  It is a huge honour and I am incredibly thankful to be given this opportunity to be captain of Dundee. Having been born and bred Dundee I am determined to give back to the club what it has given to me and will therefore, give this role my whole hearted commitment and energy. I hope to lead a team that can inspire rugby throughout Dundee and would love to do this with Dundee playing flowing exciting rugby at the highest level possible – Prem 1. Therefore, my ambition along with the players and all at the club is to get us there playing flowing and attractive rugby. Winning national 1 is a priority.
Yet again, I am delighted to be given the opportunity to lead Dundee and can’t wait for the season to begin.
DR Who is your favourite Dundee Player of All time?
This I find a difficult one to answer but Stuart Barlow must be up there. He was inspirational in teaching me what to do and more importantly, what not to do in life. It is now a sight to see a player of such crown pedigree thriving amongst the world’s best in NZ.
The Gifted Jonesy
Other mentions must go to the cultured left boot of Barry Jones, the leadership of Neil Dymock
and the incredible talent of Andy Dymock highlighted by his lid during his Scotland 7s days

We wish Duncan all the best for the new season and look forward to his leadership on and off the field.
