McCaw to Announce Retirement

By Jaylee Sapias – EM TV Sport, Port Moresby

New Zealand Rugby has announced to have a press conference with All Blacks Captain Richie McCaw at their headquarters in Wellington, New Zealand, tomorrow.

The 35 year old will officially announce that he will hang up his playing boots, after leading New Zealand to their second straight Rugby World Cup Title in England, earlier this month.

Although McCaw has refused to comment on the issue, preferring the country celebrate their Cup Title, it would be a surprise if the 35 year old continued to play after achieving everything in the sport.

McCaw created history by becoming the first ever captain to win a world cup back to back and is arguably the most decorated rugby player the world has seen. The flanker will end his 15 year international career, with a world record 148 tests in which he won 131.

He captained the All Blacks 111 times and lead 98 of those games to victory.
