Richie McCaw’s turnover against Australia during the 2011 World Cup was pure magic.
Although many fans have accused Richie McCaw of being a ‘cheat,’ the All Black Captain will undoubtedly go down in history as one of the game’s legends. McCaw immediately established himself as one of Rugby’s most legendary players after making his debut in Dublin 14 years ago.
McCaw changed the job of the openside flanker in numerous ways while maintaining true to the traditional notion of the ‘rangy openside.’ Nonetheless, he called it a day Friday night, bringing an end to a career that had many high points.
This theft against Australia in the 2011 World Cup semi-final was my personal favorite. Anthony Fainga’a, the Wallaby centre, had received a frantic offload and had stolen the ball in an unusual manner, according to McCaw.
