Richie McCaw has been appointed to the Order of New Zealand.
The former All Black captain has been recognised with the highest honour in the system.
Only 19 New Zealanders are members of the Order of New Zealand, and there is a maximum of only 20 members at one time.
McCaw is the youngest person in the current group.
Sir Edmund Hillary was a member while Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, Jim Bolger, Helen Clark and Sir Murray Halberg are current members – and now Mr McCaw is the youngest by 31 years.
