Brown to skipper Scotland

By Craig Aitken, Wednesday October 31

Scotland have named Kelly Brown as their new captain for their opening November international against the world champion All Blacks.

The announcement was made by head coach Andy Robinson as the national squad's three-day St Andrews training camp drew to a close.

"Kelly Brown is an inspirational person. He has an aura, confidence and belief about him and a firm understanding of the game," he told scottishrugby.org.

"He has been a very consistent performer for Scotland. It's because of these qualities that he has been appointed Scotland captain."

Robinson also praised Edinburgh hooker Ross Ford for his leadership of Scotland, including the most recent unbeaten three-Test match tour.

"I would like to congratulate Ross Ford in the way he has handled himself as captain of the side but also in respect of Kelly taking over," he added.

Where next?

New name for Murrayfield? According to BBC Scotland, the home of Scottish Rugby, Murrayfield, could be set for a name change in the hope of increasing revenue for the Union.
