Herring and Trimble are Ulster Captains
Rob Herring and Andrew Trimble will be sharing the captaincy of the Ulster province for the forthcoming season. Ireland skipper Rory Best has stepped down from the role of the captain of Ulster and both Herring and Trimble have been chosen as the captains this season.
Herring, the hooker, was a deputy to Best on plenty of occasions last season and has a bit of experience in captaining the Ulster team. Trimble is the most capped player in the squad and this explains why he has been chosen by the Ulster management to lead the team this season.
