Ken Owens named Scarlets captain for 2019-20 season

Ken Owens has been appointed Scarlets captain for a record sixth successive campaign.


The 32-year-old hooker, an integral member of Wales’ Rugby World Cup squad, has made 243 appearances over 13 seasons for his home region and has been Scarlets captain since 2014.

The six consecutive seasons at the helm is a record for the Scarlets in the regional era and brings Owens alongside the great Phil Bennett, the Scarlets president, who captained Llanelli RFC between 1973 and 1979 (a post-war record).

 Owens will be assisted by four vice-captains who form a new leadership group - James Davies, Jonathan Davies, Werner Kruger and Steff Hughes.
