After two seasons leading the Chiswick 1st XV Sam Leslie-Miller has decided to step down as Captain in order to concentrate on playing.
Chiswick Director of Rugby, Adrian Hoile, pays tribute to Leslie-Miller’s contribution as Captain, “Sam has been an outstanding skipper for us over the last two years and had big shoes to fill. He is a strong leader who has a ‘do as I do’ approach and brings the best out in others both on and off the pitch. He also has a kind and compassionate side which is needed when leading CRFC.
During our first season in London One South he really led from the front as we finished comfortably in the league and won the Middlesex Cup in dramatic fashion. He also won his 100th cap and manged to pick up the Player of the Year award! Last season was a complete contrast for the side but Les led the way with passion and commitment throughout but it wasn’t to be.
I know Sam will have thought long and hard about this tough choice and I’m sure that sure stepping back will allow him to refresh himself and play an even bigger part on the field for CRFC. I think whilst sad that he isn’t skipper I think his performances next season will show that this was the right choice, at the right time and the player you get will be 100 times fresher and better than the one you had.”
