Win Richie McCaw's autobiography!

Written by: Editor

The All Blacks' most capped player of all time has released his memoirs...and we want to give you a copy!

With 100 Test victories under his belt and having played over 60 Tests as captain, Richie McCaw has a story or two to tell.

When the All Blacks beat France in last year's World Cup Final, he crowned a ten year career that started with a man-of-the-match performance against Ireland in 2001.

Quite possibly the greatest player of his generation, many would even argue that he is arguably the most talented rugby player of all time.

In his autobiography, McCaw recounts for the first time, with brutal honesty, the roots of his family life that defined his character – learning to play the game on the family farm in South New Zealand and being inspired to fly gliders by his war-hero grandfather – and how it gave him the strength to emerge from the lowest moment in his career to become the most successful captain world rugby has ever seen.

Unafraid of playing the game right at the edge and putting his body on the line. McCaw's story is not just a brutal account of life on the front line, but an exhilarating portrait of modern rugby.

So how do you win one the five copies we have up for grabs? It's simple! Send the answer to the question below to Don't forget to include a postal address so we can send you your prize.
