Cape Town - Springbok skipper John Smit has congratulated All Blacks captain Richie McCaw on playing his 100th Test for New Zealand on Saturday.

McCaw, who became the first All Black to play a century of Tests for his country, reached the milestone in the All Blacks' 37-17 defeat of France at Eden Park in Auckland.

Smit, who has 109 Test caps to his name, but lost his 100th Test against the All Blacks in Soweto last year, tweeted: Congrats to Richie McCaw tonight for his 100th cap, great work!
