Sam Cane has been announced as the new All Black captain.

He will take over from Kieran Read as All Blacks skipper, New Zealand Rugby announced on Tuesday.

Cane is 28 years old and has played 68 tests since making his debut against Ireland in 2012. He is the captain of the Chiefs in Super Rugby.

New Zealand head coach Ian Foster said he was impressed with Cane’s natural ability to connect with his team mates.

“Sam is an experienced All Black with eight years in the team now and is a ‘follow me’ type of leader and a very good thinker in the game,” Foster said.

Foster said the All Blacks’ plans for this year were still being worked on due to the COVID-19 pandemic which has shut down world sport.
