Richie McCaw

Richie McCaw made his return to Super Rugby this weekend with a very memorable performance.  Despite being yellow carded in the 47th minute of the game, he showed great leadership on the field and overcame a gutsy Force side to lead the Crusaders to victory.  No matter what people may say about him, he has been named as the IRB International Player of the year 3 times and totally deserves to be Player of the Week!
