It has taken a little longer than it should have but have finally updated the list of Royal Navy Rugby Union Captains.  Congratulations go to Ben Priddey on becoming the 61st captain in the long and illustrious history of the Royal Navy Rugby Union.

He succeeded Dave Pascoe who missed much of the 2015 season through injury.  Dave remains the Royal Navy’s longest serving captain having led the side in 24 capped matches from 2006 through to 2014.
