McCaw looks to extend record

2012-08-15 12:25
Cape Town - All Blacks captain Richie McCaw will look to extend a remarkable record which has seen him record 21 wins over the Wallabies, a record by any player against any nation.
 
According to the allblacks.com website, while McCaw will look to extend that number this weekend, veteran Wallabies lock Nathan Sharpe, who will be playing his 25th Test against the All Blacks, will be seeking just his seventh win.

The All Blacks dominance of the Bledisloe rivalry is reflected by the fact that the two lists, for most losses and most wins, are dominated by All Blacks and Wallabies.

The Wallabies host the All Blacks in the opening match of the inaugural Rugby Championship in Sydney on Saturday. Kick-off is at 12:05 SA time.
