Hastati: One of three categories of heavy infantryman in the Roman Legion of the mid-republican period (3rd and 2nd century BC). The Hastati were the youngest soldiers, and formed the front line of the legion. The standard legion contained ten maniples of Hastati, each numbering between 120 and 160 men. They were equipped with two Pila, the famous Gladius, and a long semi-cylindrical body shield, made of calfskin stretched over plywood. As the soldiers had to pay for their own armour, most made do with a simple bronze chest plate, while the wealthier soldiers had either a mail or scale cuirass. The Hastati were expected to take the first clash of battle and blunt the enemy attack before the second line, the Principes.

Tony of course adds that extra strategic dimension and given todays technology he could still captain on a "virtual" basis even while in Africa.
Given hoppys anorak approach this wouldn't be the case whilst on a combine.
Jasons too involved with property development whilst Ian Harris has yet to prove himself at the lowest level.
Jeremy will be applying his trade elsewhere if the MCC grapevine is to be believed
That leaves Roy Hopperton, Martin Banks and Pete Pullan and it's difficult to make a case for any of these without a huge stretch of ones imagination.
I have my supporters but I'll be spending more time with an extended family, which one remains to be seen.
To conclude I'd take Adrian as Captain with Tony offering added value governance from deep third man.
