Super Rugby winning coach Dave Rennie has announced that the Chiefs will again use a dual captaincy system for the 2013 season.
Rennie has confirmed that Craig Clarke and Liam Messam will both share the captaincy duties as they did in 2012.
Chiefs Coach Dave Rennie said, "They are both top blokes who compliment each other, work hard and bring a different skill set to the side."
"Having co-captains worked really well for us last year, so we decided to continue with it."
"As far as leaders go, these two are highly respected by us all and epitomize what Chiefs' Mana is all about. "
The Chiefs will play a pre-season trial in Taupo this Saturday against the Highlanders.
