Brian O’Driscoll Congratulates Richie McCaw On Smashing Caps Record

Brian O’Driscoll tweeted his congratulations to Richie McCaw

Irish legend, Brian O’Driscoll, congratulated Richie McCaw on becoming the most capped international player of all time.

The former Irish captain was the previous record holder, having made a cumulative total of 141 International appearances for Ireland and the Lions. However O’Driscoll was overtaken by McCaw today, after the All Black flanker earned his 142nd cap against Australia.

The Irish legend tweeted, ‘Huge congrats to Richie McCaw in becoming the most capped Test player of all time. No one could be more deserving. #142.’

O’Driscoll also showed his humorous side when he tweeted the third most capped international George Gregan, ‘The SECOND most capped Test player of all time’ doesn’t quite have the same ring to it, does it… How’s 3rd feeling?!’

Ironically enough, McCaw made his debut against Ireland in 2001, a game in which O’Driscoll featured.
