Reihana to cover Saints captaincy
Former All Black Bruce Reihana
Reihana has played 75 games for Saints since joining in 2002
Former All Black Bruce Reihana has been named as Northampton's stand-in captain for the games skipper Steve Thompson may miss in the new season.

Thompson may miss several matches if he is named in England's squad for the autumn internationals and Six Nations.

Fly-half Reihana almost joined Worcester at the end of last season, but ended up signing a new Saints deal.

"He leads by example on and off the pitch and was the ideal candidate," said director of rugby Budge Pountney.

Reihana said: "I was overwhelmed to be asked to take on this captaincy role and it will be a true honour to lead out the Saints."
