London Irish have confirmed that Declan Danaher and George Skivington will have key leadership roles at the club for the coming season.
Danaher, 33, has been appointed Club Captain for a second successive season and will be responsible for representing the club at official functions.
Skivington, 30, will be First Team Captain responsible for leading the team on Aviva Premiership match days.
Both will be part of a wider leadership group at the club that includes Ian Humphreys, Tomás O'Leary, Topsy Ojo, David Paice and others.
"We've used this system before at the club to good effect, it takes the pressure off one player and shares the responsibilities," said London Irish Director of Rugby, Brian Smith.
"In Declan and George we have two outstanding leaders whose qualities and experience lend themselves to the roles we've allocated to them.
"I'm looking forward to working with the entire leadership group as we go about the business of ensuring a successful season for this great club."
Danaher completed his 14th professional season at London Irish in May during which he made his 250th senior appearance for the club in the match with Harlequins in October 2012.
Danaher is widely respected throughout the game not just for his commitment as a player but also for his passion for the club he has represented since his teenage years.
Skivington, a former captain of the England Saxons, joined the Exiles in July 2012 and had a considerable impact last season making 23 senior appearances and scoring three tries.
Skivington captained the team in Danaher's absence through injury and received the "Player of the Season" award at the club's end of season awards ceremony.
