Kate Rowan: He seems too good to be true but Richie McCaw is a legend on and off the field
IMAGINE a man who is a world champion and an inspirational captain for club and country. Off the field, add charisma, intelligence and rugged good looks.
Throw in a pilot’s licence and proficiency at playing the bagpipes and we are starting to move into the territory of fiction. Maybe the hero in some schmaltzy chick lit. But this character is very real.
He has been one of the leading men of world rugby for the past decade, his name is Richie McCaw.
