Rugby Spread Betting: Dylan Hartley to captain Northampton Saints for the new season

It was confirmed that Dylan Hartley will captain Northampton Saints during the new season, and many rugby spread betting fans believe that the club made a very good decision.
Rugby betting UK services saw that in the Premiership final loss to Leicester, Hartley was sent off after verbally abusing referee Wayne Barnes.
The England hooker who is very well known with pay per head sportsbooks received an 11-week ban for the incident, and rugby spread betting fans were disappointed to learn about what happened, as it cost the player a place on the British and Irish Lions tour, but the player is available for the season’s first game on against Exeter taking place on September 7.
Price per head services learned that Jim Mallinder, Saints director of rugby, backed Hartley, insisting that he learned from the incident and has the players’ full respect, and many rugby spread betting fans don’t doubt this.
“Dylan has matured a great deal over the past few years and is now an excellent club captain,” he said.
“A massive amount of that work is done behind the scenes during the week, and Dylan’s attitude and desire has won him the respect of the rest of the players as well as the back-room staff.
And rugby betting UK services would really like to see the player continue to show good behaviour.
“Of course we’re aware that the events of May’s Aviva Premiership final will mean that there will be a lot of attention on Dylan this season. He has learned from what happened at Twickenham and knows what is expected of him in the coming season.
“We certainly believe that he has the temperament to do well under the pressure, and will continue to improve as a player and as a leader.”

Pay per head sportsbooks found out that Hartley, who has led Northampton for the last four years, was named earlier this month in the England squad after he assured head coach Stuart Lancaster over his future conduct, and rugby spread betting fans seriously hope that he behaves.
