The All Blacks will have try out a new captain on their end of year tour to Europe, in anticipation of Richie McCaw’s sabbatical from rugby next year.

Coach Steve Hansen told Rugby365.com that McCaw will lead the team in the first match of the tour against Scotland, after which he will be rested against minnows Italy the following weekend.

It is expected that Kieran Read or even Dan Carter will be leading the team out against the Italians, after which Richie McCaw is expected to play the final two matches on the tour, his last involvement in rugby until June 2013.
