Former Munster and Ireland captain Mick Galwey says he expects the current Munster captain Peter O’Mahony to take over from Rory Best as the next Ireland Skipper.
The Ulster hooker has confirmed he’ll retire from professional rugby after this year’s World Cup in Japan.
Best is Ireland’s third most capped ever player, winning four Six Nations titles, and captained them to last year’s Grand Slam.
Mick Galwey, who was a British and Irish Lion in the 90s and an All-Ireland senior medal winner for Kerry in 1986, says Rory Best’s most famous achievement was captaining Ireland to beat the All Blacks twice.
Rory Best will turn 37 in August, and the player himself feels like he’s picking the perfect time to call it quits.
