McCaw, who led the All Blacks to the 2011 World Cup victory indicated several times this year he would bow out after this tournament.

Team management have also spoken as if Saturday's final will be the 34-year-old's last Test, but McCaw insisted he has not made a final decision.

"I'll make a decison when I get home," he said.

"I want to play this weekend and that (retirement) hasn't entered my mind this week.

"I've made no secret I'm going to have a good reflect on things after this."

McCaw has played a world record 147 Tests.
