Richie McCaw is arguably the greatest rugby player of all time and held in high esteem around the world. In his time with the All Blacks he recorded 131 test wins in world record 148 tests, and is a strong and natural leader, captaining the team for 111 tests. One of the greats of the modern rugby game, McCaw led the All Blacks to Rugby World Cup glory in 2011 and 2015 and claimed the World Rugby Player of the Year Award a record three times. McCaw retired at the end of 2015 and now splits his time across a wide range of charity, sponsorship and business interests, and is a keen pilot, holding licences for both helicopters and fixed wing aircraft. In 2016, McCaw became the youngest person ever appointed to the Order of New Zealand, the country’s highest honour that can only be held by 20 living New Zealanders.
