“Lost 17kg” – All Blacks legend Richie McCaw looks unrecognisable since playing days

All Blacks legend Richie McCaw has revealed he’s dropped 10kg since retiring, shifting what he called ‘unnecessary rugby muscle’.

Since hanging up his boots following their 2015 World Cup triumph, McCaw has become obsessed with ultra-hardcore marathons and has shifted a lot of that weight to give him a speed advantage.

The 41-year-old, who weighed 107 kg, is now closer to 90kg since dropping the weight.
