I agree, make George Ford captain but make sure that we get rid of Mike Ford so that they cannot create the toxic environment they made at Bath.

Don't think that had much to do with George. I think his dad fell out with senior players in the changing room over Burgess and the alleged affair.

I only agree with backs being the skipper when they are tactically very strong for a team, for example when and where to kick and when and where to run it from fly half according to what the forwards do, or a rock of a centre for a team based on a dominant crash ball game.
Ford has played very well individually off the cuff this season but tactically and physically it has been very mixed.
I don't see an obvious choice past Thompson as skipper yet which for me is a problem, perhaps there are potential candidates coming in.

Luke Hamilton is not really a leader.
Nor have we missed him TBH.

Quite agree RBull - just another average back rower . George Ford has kept us afloat this Season and should be the onfield Captain if available . I would make Guy Thompson the Club Captain - OTY has had his time and does not merit a starting spot now .

As mentioned elsewhere, I would make Guy Thompson skipper. I wont repeat my reasons.
