SUPER RUGBY NEWS: Chiefs head coach Warren Gatland revealed that loose forward Sam Cane will captain the Chiefs for the upcoming Super Rugby season.

Gatland said Cane is a respected member of the Chiefs squad and is a notable leader.

“Sam has co-captained the Chiefs since 2016. He is an experienced campaigner who is well respected by the players and management. We believe it was important to identify one person this season to lead the team and that individual would be supported by the team’s leadership group,” said Gatland.

Cane has been a formidable member of the Chiefs since his debut in 2012 and played his role in the Chiefs 2012 and 2013 Super Rugby title wins. Cane has co-captained alongside Charlie Ngatai, Aaron Cruden and Brodie Retallick for the past four seasons.

Having played 111 games for the Chiefs and 68 games for the All Blacks, Cane has been a proven leader both on and off the field. He continues to lead from the front with his strong work ethic and knowledge of the game.

Honoured by the announcement, Cane said he was privileged to lead a talented group.

“It is an honour to be asked to captain this side and I am excited for the season to kick off,” said the captain.

“We have a talented squad, with a good mix of experience and gifted young players. This combined with a fantastic group of experienced leaders, we believe will be the right ingredients to help drive us to another title.”

Cane said he is looking forward to the opportunity to work with Gatland.

“We are privileged to be able to have a coach of his calibre lead a great coaching group. I am looking forward to working with and learning off Warren this season.”

*Meanwhile, the Chiefs will kick off their 2020 season in front of a sold-out Waihi crowd on Friday when they take the field to face the Blues.

This will be the sides only pre-season fixture before they launch into the uper Rugby season against the Blues at Eden Park on Friday, January 31.
