World record for Richie McCaw

2012-06-24 15:29

Cape Town - All Black captain Richie McCaw now stands alone as the player with the most Test wins in the history of the game.

McCaw, who played in his 106th Test when New Zeland thrashed Ireland 60-0 in Hamilton on Saturday, overtook Wallabies record holder George Gregan after they were level on 93 wins each.

According to the All Blacks.com website, McCaw now stands on 94 Test wins from 106 internationals.

Gregan notched his over a 139-Test reign, so McCaw has hit the record 33 games ahead of the former Australian scrumhalf.

    How about offering McCaw double citizenship?

    McCaw and the All Blacks the team to beat! At least the Junior Bokke showed there's hope for the future! But take nothing away from McCaw, awesome player and awesome captain! Congratulations!

    Beste rugby speler in die wereld go Richie

    When they said he got a world record, I was under the impression he got it for most foul steals in a ruck without the ref noticing.

      Pat - 2012-06-24 23:29

      @stewtwat,duhnobrain.... just saw the NEW world record, biggest, most whiniest fans in the history of the game goes to the springsucks supporters!! congratulations!!!

      It's always better to lose honorably than to win by cheating.

      norman.harris.754 - 2012-06-25 18:55

      blame the ref for that....everyone on the field walks the fine line of the rules....he just happens to do it better than any one else...and i mean anyone!! go richie

      steward.debruin - 2012-06-25 22:15

      Yes, you do have to blame the ref. But when 50000 people are shouting that an infringement took place and the ref ignores that, you have to believe that money changed hands.

    Well deserved from a great player and a great guy

  • Caleb - 2012-06-25 03:10

    You make us very proud King Ritchie, all other nations are incredibly jealous, of your innovativeness, durability and technique. A record that will be near impossible to beat.

  • tom.hunter.7792 - 2012-06-25 08:32

    Well done Richie together with the All Blacks! You Kiwi's are funny... "King Richie"
