Richie McCaw & Dick Frizzel

Richie McCaw is the most capped All Black with 148 tests to his name. In a career spanning 15 years, he won 2 Rugby World Cups and was named World Player of the Year 3 time. Dick Frizzell is one of New Zealand’s most successful and high profile contemporary artists.

Inspiration has been taken from the Black Jersey worn by the All Blacks since 1893. The Silver Fern worn on the chest represents to Maori strength, resistance and enduring power.
