Legion Legacy Continues: Captain Cowan Signs on for Another Year

San Diego, CA – Dec 30 2023 - The Legion's indomitable team captain, Blair Cowan, has re-signed for the 2024 season! This contract extension is a profound testament to Cowan's experience and the leadership he brings to the San Diego Legion.

Cowan has created a lasting legacy in rugby with notable tenures with various teams across the globe, such as the Scotland International Team, where he had 19 caps and played in a Rugby World Cup. Other teams that Blair played rugby include Cornish Pirates, Worcester Warriors, London Irish, Saracens, and Black Rams Tokyo. During his time with London Irish, he had 153 appearances and was celebrated as one of the Premiership's top flankers and nicknamed "the tackling machine." A standout moment was his 34 tackles in a match for London Irish against Worcester Warriors, demonstrating his defensive mastery. During the 2016/17 season, Blair emerged as a key player, contributing six tries instrumental in securing London Irish's elevation to the Premiership.

“After leading our team to the MLR final in 2023 we welcome Blair back into the Legion family for another season. He knows the job was not finished last year and is chomping at the bit to go one better in 2024. His drive to succeed and his passion for the game is second to none and is the reason why the Legion boys are willing to go to war (rugby) with him every weekend. I’m looking forward to having him back in the red and black and to go one better for 2024.”

Danny Lee, Head Coach and Director Of Rugby.
