Letchworth Rugby Club are hoping to use their Brain to get their promotion charge after appointing a new playing captain for the season.
Head coach Baz Basra has gone for second-row John Brain to lead the Legends’ charge up the London Two North West table.
The forward is no stranger to the role either having took on the responsibility in a number of games last season.
As a youngster, Brain enjoyed his rugby at Royston but feeling the need to step up the leagues, he followed in his father David’s footsteps and joined Letchworth.
He said: “The club have declared an ambition to challenge for promotion within two seasons and my on-field job is to motivate and keep us playing to the game plan.
