The Departure of Sam Cane

As Sam Cane steps down from his role as the All Blacks captain, New Zealand rugby finds itself at a crossroads. Cane, who will retire from international rugby at the end of this season to join the Japanese club Suntory Sungoliath, leaves behind big shoes to fill. The mantle of leadership now falls between two standout candidates: Scott Barrett and Ardie Savea.

Kieran Read's Insightful Perspective

Former All Blacks captain Kieran Read, a man who has led New Zealand in 52 of his 127 Tests, has weighed in on the captaincy debate.

Read, known for his calm demeanor and strategic mind, offers a unique perspective on the two contenders. He believes that Scott Barrett’s familiarity with head coach Scott Robertson could give him the edge over Ardie Savea.

“It’s an interesting call,” Read said, reflecting on the decision ahead. “I know in the past, Ardie has probably been a bit shy from it. It doesn’t sit on his shoulders as well as a few others have.”

Read’s comment sheds light on Savea’s reserved nature, suggesting that his bashfulness might not bode well for the demanding role of All Blacks captain.

However, Read does not dismiss Savea's potential, acknowledging his inspirational presence on the field.

Scott Barrett’s Proven Leadership

Scott Barrett, affectionately known as “Scooter,” has a history of success under Robertson’s guidance. As the Crusaders’ captain, Barrett led the team to three Super Rugby titles, showcasing his ability to steer his squad through high-pressure situations.
