Richie McCaw IRB Player of the year 2010
Sorry - I know I signed off for a few months but I had to come back for one last glorious gloat. R.McCaw - IRB international player of the year - for the third time in a decade! Does this mean the man is the greatest rugby player of the decade? I think so, I mean who else has ever done that (not Brian O'Driscoll BTW).
S0, sorry Stephen Jones and http://www.greenandgoldrugby.com/ and Brian Moore and Stephen Charvis and Jeremy Gusgott and Jonathan Davies and Bob Dwyer and Robbie Deans and Rob Andrew and Hugh Farrelly and Stephen Ferris and all the other non-rugby playing hacks and rugby player third graders that had a moan about him.
The IRB has spoken, and tonight (only tonight) I give him Moses status. Richie McCaw one of the greats. Almost greater than Richard Hill (yeah right) and dare I say it, greater than NZ's version of MJ - Michael Jones. Possibly, the All Black of our history. And I was honoured enough to meet him and watch him play.
Well done R.McCaw. Well done.
