Top All Blacks Players Set For Hall of Fame

September 16, 2019 by

All Blacks legend Richie McCaw and award-winning coach Sir Graham Henry are set to be inducted into the World Rugby Hall of Fame. Others that will be inducted during the same period include Shiggy Konno from Japan, Peter Fatialofa of Samoa, Os du Randt from South Africa, and Diego Ormaechea from Uruguay. Fatialofa and Konno will be inducted into the Hall of Fame posthumously, while Henry, McCaw, and Ormaechea will attend an event at the beginning of November.

The induction event will be held at Prince Park Tower in Tokyo, and will celebrate their contributions to the sport as well as their careers so far. The six inductees will bring the total within the Hall of Fame to 148 since it was first started in 2006.

McCaw was the captain of New Zealand in 110 of his 148 tests, and lead the team to World Cup victories for both 2011 and 2015. He also guided the team to their first World Cup title since 1987 during the 2011 event that took place on home soil. The player was named World Rugby Coach of the Year in 2005, an award that he would win another four times in 2006, 200, 2019, and 2011.

World Rugby chairman and Hall of Fame inductee Bill Beaumont stated that their beloved game would not be what it is today without eh contributions of remarkable players, both men and women, who form the World Rugby Hall of Fame.
