Samoa's 2011 Rugby World Cup captain Mahonri Schwalger has re-signed with the Chiefs.

The hooker, who has played in three World Cups and captained Samoa in their historic win against the Wallabies last year, has signed on for a further two years with the current Super Rugby competition leaders.

Chiefs coach Dave Rennie said the 32-year-old Schwalger's experience, skill and leadership qualities are valuable to the franchise.

What do you make of the Blues signing Jimmy Cowan?

It's a great move. His experience is needed.

The jury's still out for me. Let's wait and see.

It's a desperate move. Respectfully, Cowan is past it.

The Blues have bigger worries than halfback.
