Alun Wyn Jones retains Ospreys captaincy
August 3, 2013
Ospreys boss Steve Tandy has confirmed Alun Wyn Jones will lead the Welsh region next season.
Jones captained the British & Irish Lions in the third Test against Australia and was one of the tourists' standout players throughout the series. And he will keep the captain's armband at the Ospreys as they turn attention to next season.
"It will be Alun Wyn as captain again and there will be no need for changes there," Tandy told Wales Online. "He is an inspirational player who leads by example and is not afraid to say his piece. He is a huge leader for us and ideal for me as a coach. He is a fantastic player and a true Osprey."
