There are some big shoes to fill when taking captaincy of the man that NZ rugby and world rugby will continue to talk about and compare you to, but the least you can do, being Kieran Read, is to lead by example. Losing is hard for any team, but you would have to admit that losing is hard for a team that doesn't experience it very often. So to see skipper Read, go around and console the boys and stamp his mark as the new All Black captain is pretty special. This will surely get the boys excited.
