From the BBC

Kelly Brown has been named as Scotland captain for the Autumn Test against New Zealand.

The 30-year-old Saracens back-row will become Scotland's fifth captain in just two years.

Brown was due to skipper the side before injury ruled him out of this year's Six Nations where Scotland lost all five matches.

Fantastic news and think he is the best choice for captain. Maybe take some pressure off Ford as he can throw in straight for once

Very pleased for him. Leads by example, and comes across as a top bloke. Scotland certainly have a cracking backrow in the pipeline....

It had to be KB, really glad he's been awarded the captaincy. OK

Overcoming a stammer to give a thousand TV interviews is something to be very pleased about.

That and being one of the finest blindsides in Europe.

Not to mention that he's one of the best singing pro-rugby players on the planet (well, at least according to him!) Wink

I agree with Ruby. I think Gatland has to pick his best team then captain as Jones, Warburton, Robshaw, Brown, POC, BOD, Hartley etc all have captaincy credentials and at least one is going to make the starting 15
