Ben Mowen will again lead the ACT Brumbies in this season's Super Rugby series ahead of Wallabies David Pocock and Stephen Moore, head coach Jake White said.
Pocock, who has captained the Wallabies, joined the Brumbies in the off-season from the Western Force, where he also led the Perth-based Super 15 side.
White said number eight Mowen had proven himself to be a valuable leader of the Brumbies.
"Ben's proven above and beyond that he is a quality leader and the right man to be captain of this team into the future," White said.
"There were numerous times through the (last) season that his leadership proved the difference for the Brumbies and it's a pleasure to have him back in the same position for 2013."
