Captain Fantastic

The man and the machine

Following in the footsteps of Paul O’Connell as Ireland captain is no easy task. Fortunately for Ireland, Ulster’s finest leader was on hand to take on the mantle. In this story we take a trip North to Rory Best’s home. We meet his family (and the family dog!), watch as he practices his lineout skills, and hear about the day he was asked by Joe Schmidt to step up as captain. Oh, and watch out for Rory’s self made lineout machine too!
