Jonathan Mills has been confirmed as London Welsh captain for the 2012/13 season.
Mills, 28, led Welsh to Championship success last season and is the Exiles’ longest serving player. He recently signed a new contract with the club.
He made his 100th league appearance for the Exiles in the club’s victory at Leeds Carnegie on the opening weekend of last year’s Championship season. But Mills would endure an injury interrupted season, before making a timely return to guide the Exiles through the play-offs.
In total, Mills has made 141 appearances for London Welsh, scoring 11 tries. He took over the captaincy in 2010.
“I’m very happy to keep doing the job and delighted that Lyn thought I did a good job last season,” said Mills. “The captaincy brings out the best in me. The way I play, I lead from the front anyway and hopefully it inspires the other boys to an extent."
