Brett Beukeboom: Cornish Pirates appoint Canada forward as new captain
Cornish Pirates have named Canada forward Brett Beukeboom as captain.
The 27-year-old, who has won 31 international caps and played at the last World Cup, has been a Pirate since moving from Plymouth Albion in 2015.
He succeeds Chris Morgan, who stepped down as skipper this summer after being appointed as a player-coach of the Championship side.
Meanwhile, the Pirates have signed 24-year-old prop forward Tom Concu, on a one-year contract from Caldy.
