Johannesburg: New Zealand rugby great Richie McCaw, who led his side to two World Cup triumphs, called curtains on his inspirational career on Thursday.

The 34-year-old flanker, who played a world record 148 Tests, became the only captain to ever claim back-to-back World Cups last month.

According to Sport24, McCaw said that he was going to hang up his boots and end his rugby days after opening his press conference with a minute’s silence for All Black legend Jonah Lomu, who died on Wednesday.

McCaw, who captained New Zealand side which defeated Australia 34-17 in this year’s World Cup final, is also a three-time winner of the World Player of the Year award. (ANI)
