Hooker Will Crane and summer signing, scrum-half JB Bruzulier will be joint skippers of the Hartpury University RFC squad this season.
Crane was part of a similar duo last season, while the appointment of Bruzulier reflects both his Championship experience and the impact he has made on the management since his arrival from the Cornish Pirates.
“We wanted to combine JB’s experience with Will’s understanding of the Hartpury culture,” said Head Coach, Mark Cornwell.
“As a scrum half JB has a good understanding of managing the game and he can directly influence this as his involvements are so high”
“Craney will be at the heart of all the forward exchanges so can drive the mental and physical approach. We think they will complement each other very well”
The pair were both involved with last Friday’s very promising session with the Bristol Bears and were both in the starting XV which took a lead into half-time versus the Ospreys. a week earlier.
Both players can also expect to be part of the plans as we travel to Ealing Trailfinders for the Champion season curtain-raiser on this coming Saturday (3pm).
