The flanker has never let the team down and will undoubtedly lead from the front in his usual no-nonsense combative style.
One of our most consistent performers last season, he was rewarded with a well deserved place in the Premiership’s team of the year. Hopefully with his leadership Neath can return to its rightful place at the top of Welsh club rugby.
It is also right at this point that we should also thank Gareth Gravell for his outstanding leadership over the last few seasons. Again, a tough uncompromising leader, he has done a tremendous job in tough circumstances over the last few years.
So, it’s thanks to Grav and good luck to Duck for the coming season.
