All Blacks skipper Richie McCaw has given his clearest indication yet of what he will be doing next year – and it’s unlikely to be playing rugby.
McCaw said at Crusaders training today that retirement was the most likely option, not that he wanted to dwell on it.
“Honestly, I haven’t made any final decisions but probably the likelihood is I’m not going to be playing next year. But I don’t want to be getting carried away now talking about those sorts of things when I am focusing about playing.
“I want to really enjoy this year but, as I say, that’s the likelihood and I don’t want to make any big announcements because I don’t think that would be right going into a season.”
