On the eve of the Rugby World Cup final at Paris, the All Blacks have been joined in camp by a man who’s literally done it all…

Former skipper Richie McCaw has spent time with the team, helping out and sharing his experience of winning two World Cups.

Newshub caught up with McCaw to ask how he thinks the team is handling the build-up to the final against South Africa.

“I think they’re just excited, which is a great thing to be,” he said. “This is why you play the game – to be in weeks like this.

“The opportunity is there to perform on Saturday [local time]… there will be a few nerves, but they’ve earnt their right to have a crack and I think they’re just pretty keen to get into it.”
