Newshub weekly sports quiz: How well do you know new All Blacks captain Sam Cane?

COVID-19 has put the All Blacks' test schedule in doubt for the next few months - but at least we have a captain.

Incumbent Kieran Read retired from the national team after last year's Rugby World Cup in Japan, but new coach Ian Foster has wasted little time in naming his successor, with Chiefs flanker Sam Cane stepping into the role.

Cane, 28, has been groomed for the role under Read and predecessor Richie McCaw, and has already led the team three times over his nine-year All Blacks career.

Former All Blacks coach Sir Graham Henry remembers his first encounter with teenaged Cane nine years ago.

"I did a tour of the franchises just after I left the post as All Blacks coach and I remember vividly he welcomed me to the Chiefs session," Henry told The AM Show. 

"He was just 18 years old and even then, I thought how mature he was. I was very impressed by Sam as a young man. 

"I think Sam will be a great captain."

The All Blacks' next scheduled outing is against Wales at Auckland's Eden Park on July 4.
