    O'Mahony Named Squad Captain
    30 July 2013, 4:01 pm

    By The Editor


    Munster Rugby today confirmed that Peter O'Mahony will captain the squad for the 2013/14 season.

    Following on from his recent captaincy of the Ireland touring squad to North America, the 23 year old has been selected to captain Munster for the upcoming season.
    Taking over from Doug Howlett who retired in June, O’Mahony is no stranger to the role and previously captained Munster during the 2011/12 season in Paul O’Connell’s absence, and in doing so claimed the Munster Rugby Young Player of the Year award.

    O’Mahony also captained Munster A to the inaugural British and Irish Cup Final in 2010 and has previously captained Ireland U20s and U18s.

    With 46 Munster caps to his name Peter made his league debut in January 2010 as a replacement against Ulster. He then put in a Man of the Match performance on his Heineken Cup debut against Northampton Saints in November 2011 and scored his first Munster try a week later against Castres Olympique. He has represented Ireland on sixteen occasions.

    On news of the announcement Peter had the following to say “It is the biggest honour of my career so far and it is very special to me. When I was asked by Rob initially I was just shocked and my first instinct was to jump at it, but I had time to go away and think about it and I wanted to talk to people to get their thoughts.

    Fellas like Paulie are very important guys in this squad and hopefully he and the other guys will be behind me for the year and I’m really looking forward to it. I’m not going to try and fill Paulie’s boots, Axel’s boots or Dougie’s, I’m going to try and be my own captain, look after the lads and figure out the way I’m going to do things.

    Captaining Ireland and your country is huge, and obviously that experience will stand to me but I’m just delighted with this opportunity now.”

    Head Coach Rob Penney added “Peter is a naturally gifted leader and is still very young but has a lot of the attributes that are special and intrinsic to Munster. He will grow in to being a special leader of this group of men. I have spoken to players including Paul O’Connell who was extremely supportive of Pete’s appointment.

    We went through a process last year to appoint Dougie via the players and this year Peter’s name was to the forefront of that list so taking all that information on board it was a no brainer that Pete would be appointed.”

    • Squeaky Bum Time approaches

      (By Piquet - not my work!)
      1/2

      That time of the season so beloved of Sir Alex Ferguson is coming into view.

      There will have to be major rule changes next year, given that of all the Premiership teams, only one, Saracens, are not in the bottom half of their Pool.
      Peculiarly enough, of the ten fixtures in Round Four, only three had different results from the previous Round.
      Significant gaps have developed in three of the pools and the first four casualties...

      (1/2)
      Right, we’re at the Halfway stage both in the Head to Head games and overall.

      In the old days, if you lost your first match, you didn't win the Heineken Cup. Munster put a stop to that in 2006. Then, if you lost your first two matches, you were out. With the change in format to allow three rather than two Pool runners up go through, that went by the wayside two years ago courtesy of Bath.
