"Really inspiring for the kids ! Love the goal setting."
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I bought this for hubby and the whole family watch it and we all enjoyed seeing Richie's story. Very inspiring for the young kids and interesting for the adults to hear of his story. Loved the goal setting he does.

"Great background of a Rugby Football Legend!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

A look at the 12 months of lead up to and including the 2015 Rugby World Cup from Richies' perspective, with “flashbacks” from his past as he grew into the rugby player he became. The story also includes interviews with other players (fellow & opposition), coaches and commentators. It was Great on the big screen, and just as good at home.

"A great player"

A great watch, very interesting


Richie McCaw: Chasing Great

Chasing Great follows Richie McCaw through his final season as he attempts the goal of captaining the All Blacks to the first ever-back-to back Rugby World Cup Wins. Woven through that final season the film tells the story of Richie’s life. With unprecedented access to Richie and a remarkable family video archive ‘Chasing Great’ is the story of how a shy farm boy went on to be one of the greatest rugby players of all time. Until now Richie McCaw’s achie­vements have been well documented but little is known about the man himself. ‘Chasing Great’ takes the audience inside his world. What emerges is a very personal insight into high level international sport and a psychological profile of the mind of a champion.

Like any All Black-blooded Kiwi I am perfectly happy to relive those heady moments of victory, and even the horrors of the French losses, especially in all their glory on the big screen with the extra insider access that the filmmakers give us. – Kate Rodgers – TV3
