Shocking video reveals how All Black legend Richie McCaw was physically targeted throughout his career
Richie McCaw was targeted beyond belief in his career. He literally puts his body on the line for his country. Back to back rugby world cup winning captain he will go down as one of the all-time greats!
A shocking video has revealed just how badly the All Black legend was targeted by players during his stellar career for the men in black.
A video online made by the brilliant editors at Rugby Beast revealed how the All Black’s all-time greatest flanker had been systematically attacked by certain players from certain teams during his career.
In the video you can see the likes of Ireland, England and Australia all going for Richie McCaw in targeted attempts to either injure or rattle the All Black star!
The All Black legend still has a massive effect on the rugby World.
As New Zealand prepares to go into a four-week lockdown in a bid to contain the Covid-19 virus, former All Blacks skipper Richie McCaw has urged the nation to try to remain connected as individuals and families around the nation face up to a very different challenge.
Former loose forward McCaw, who played 148 tests and won two World Cups (the first, in 2011, while playing on a broken foot) is regarded as the best captain and one of the best and toughest players to have worn the black jersey.
He and his family are not without challenges themselves. His wife Gemma is a Black Sticks hockey player who is continuing to train for the Olympics in Tokyo without knowing when exactly they will be held. Overnight officials postponed the Games to no later than July next year.
McCaw is also an owner and director of a Christchurch-based helicopter business which will be affected by the lockdown and tourist drought as the world comes to terms with a rapidly spreading pandemic.
“You think of businesses, and I’m involved in a business which has challenges ahead, it’s about trying to work out what you can control,” McCaw told Sky TV’s Breakdown show last night.
“People can’t go to work and businesses have lost revenue… some of that is out of your control, but you can control your attitude around looking after your people and your family.
