Activity 1: Chasing Great
Over the past 17 years New Zealand has experienced a number of sporting highlights, perhaps none larger than the back-to-back Rugby World Cup victories in 2011 and 2015. In both competitions our national rugby team, the All Blacks, was captained by a man named Richie McCaw. He is arguably one of the best rugby players of all time. A movie called Chasing Great was recently created to document his incredible rugby career.

Please watch the trailer for Chasing Great and read about Richie McCaw online. On your blog tell us three things that you learned about Richie that you did not know beforehand. What else would you like to know about Richie?

3 Facts I didn't know abut Richie were things like:)

1:) He was born on the 31st of December 1980 & his full name is Richard Hugh Mccaw.

2:) He made his debut in the early 2000's - 2001 for his old Rugby team the Crusaders, and was selected for the All Blacks in 2001 for his end of year tour.

3:) Richie Mccaw has also equaled the Rugby record for most appearances at the Rugby World Cup with Jason Leonard.

So there we have it, here are the 3 things I didn't know about Richie Mccaw. I really hope you enjoyed my blog post mainly about Richard Hugh Mccaw. It was an easy & a really fun task to do, especially when I was feeling very exhausted. It was so fun doing this. I hope you enjoyed my very short blog post & I do hope you stay tuned in for more upcoming blog posts soon.

  1. Hi Hinerangi!

    My name is Ellee, I am another part of the Summer Learning Journey Crew that is commenting on your blogs this summer.

    I really enjoyed reading what you have learnt about Richie McCaw. I think he is a pretty interesting dude, I found out the other day that he also has his pilot license!
    I think that even though he is a really great rugby player, he's not my favourite player - my favourite is Tana Umaga! Do you have a favourite rugby player?

    This was a really great post Hinerangi, it is great to see how awesome you are doing with the activities - keep it up!

    Ellee :)
