Dave Rennie gave clear indications about who could be the captain of the Wallabies in the upcoming series with Bleus
In recent days, Australia coach Dave Rennie gave an interview to local Fox Sports in which he anticipated what could be an important confirmation in light of the upcoming matches from the Wallabies: Michael Hopper will remain the captain of the yellow and green XV. The 29-year-old has returned home a few days after finishing his season in the Japanese Premier League, in which he played alongside Kieran Reed at Toyota Fairblits.

Now that he is back in Australia, there will be a recovery period for him before returning to the national team. The third streak, which made its international debut in 2012 and amassed something like 105 caps, Super Rugby Trans-Tasman will not be playing with Warathas (his squad from 2013 to 2020), and so is only considering the Wallabies’ next challenges. Challenges that will feature a highly anticipated series against France and then the Rugby Championship. Rene said, “It is very likely that Huber will remain our captain. There are many opinions about him but I am in close contact with the player. He is a great example of the commitment and desire that he puts into every match, he has a lot of respect for the shirt and all the young players should be inspired by him.”
Words thus showing a Manly native among the teams of the first Test match with the Blues on July 7, dashing hopes of James O’Connor, who after dragging the Reds to victory in Super Rugby AU seemed to be a potential substitute for the role of Australia’s captain.
