In an interview published in the official media of the British and Irish Lions, Paul O’Connell went out to bank Owen farrell and proposed him as captain for the next international tour that the team will carry out in July of this year.
O’Connel led the Lions on his last visit to the Springboks, and now made it clear who he sees as his successor: “With empty stadiums you can hear players raise their voices during games, Farrell is constantly barking at his teammates.. He has a lot of experience, and a great leadership role, it would not be unfamiliar territory for him. “
The tour will begin in July with five test matches against South African franchises, and will end in August with three meetings against the Springboks. Coach Warren Gatland will have the tough task of choosing the leader between Owen and Welsh Alum Wyn Jones.
