Scarlets to unveil skipper for season
THE Scarlets plan to name their captain for the new rugby season tomorrow.
A press conference has been called at the Red Room Bar with Simon Easterby poised to reveal who would be his choice as leader for the 2013-14 campaign.
Jonathan Davies, George Earle, Ken Owens and last year's skipper Rob McCusker have all been mentioned in connection with the post.
If Lions Test man Davies is chosen, an issue might be that he would be away for significant chunks of the season on Wales duty, though Alun Wyn Jones manages to cope without too many problems at the Ospreys.
An option for the Scarlets might be to announce a leadership team, designed to steer them around any captaincy problems at particular points of the term.
"We've had a good think about the captaincy," said Easterby.
"It's something that we put a lot of thought and detail into."
