I recently read an article about Stander and in the comments section someone said that Stander would do well, in the future, as an Irish captain. Obviously he is not Irish, and that comment caused a lot of uproar, with some people commending it. It's a bit of a weird one, as people can obviously naturalize themselves into their adopted country over the course of the years, especially if you're doing something like consistently representing that country at an international level. My mother is Greek but has lived here for 30 years and of course speaks fluent English with an Irish accent, and pretty much considers herself Irish as much as Greek. I feel this type of principle should translate onto the rugby pitch, but I feel many people would disagree with this. What is your opinion on this? And are there many instances of international players captaining countries they're not from? Personally, if Stander continues to deliver top class performances, some of which hopefully lead to international titles, and if he is happy to do so at the age of 30 onwards or whatever, then I'd have no problem with him being our captain. He strikes me as captain material already. I mean, our coach is Kiwi, so would it really make that huge of a difference? Thoughts please.
