O'Shea tips Robshaw to bloom

by Setanta Staff , 06 November 2011

Harlequins director of rugby Conor O'Shea has backed flanker Chris Robshaw to take over as England captain following Lewis Moody's retirement.

Quins are currently riding high in the Aviva Premiership and the 26-13 victory at Bath on Saturday only helped to consolidate their position at the top of the standings.

Key to this has been the performances of the hard-working skipper and O'Shea believes he's the right man to lead his country, despite his limited international experience.

"He would be my choice as England captain," the former Ireland full-back said.

"He won the Premiership Player of the Year award a few years ago when he was just 22 and it says a lot about what other players think of him."
