After committing his future to his home region back in February with a new three-year contract, Justin Tipuric will take the reigns as Captain for the third season running.
“Since I have been here he has been one of the shining lights in our evolution so as a result it was an easy choice,” said head coach Toby Booth.
“He is well respected and is the leader on and off the field.”
The talismanic openside represented Wales in the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games in the rugby sevens event, adding to his sevens experience after playing for Wales Sevens just a year before making his full Wales debut off the bench against Argentina in 2011.
Capped 75 times by Wales, the triple Six Nations and double Grand Slam champion openside from Trebanos has also been on the last two British & Irish Lions tours to Australia and New Zealand and captained his country for the first time in 2019s Rugby World Cup.
