Beswick named Ireland captain

Posted by

Toronto Wolfpack hooker Bob Beswick has been named Ireland captain for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers.

Beswick takes over from Liam Finn, who retired from international rugby at the end of 2018.

“I’m really looking forward to playing for Ireland again with the goal of World Cup qualification our focus,” said Beswick.

“To be selected as captain is a surprise but I’ll do my best to carry on in the same direction that Liam Finn has pushed us over the last decade.”
