Who's who on the 2008 Power List
[Izzy wrote : Didn't want to bore you with the whole list, so have copied Richie's bit - he was in at number 26. This is a Christchurch/Canterbury list.]
RICHIE McCAW: Captain in name and in performance for both the Crusaders and All Blacks, McCaw has played a pivotal role in bringing Super 14 finals and titles to the city. Not many other people on the list could bring Christchurch to a standstill or have such an impact on the mood of its citizens and the local economy. Between leading his teams to a Super 14 trophy, Tri-Nations title, Bledisloe Cup and a Grand Slam, he fitted in winning the NPC with Canterbury. Why he wasn't world player of the year remains one of the big mysteries of 2008.
