Sam Whitelock became the third All Black with the most matches

In New Zealand’s defeat of the United States by 104-14, another special seasoning in the memory of New Zealanders gave the present. Samuel Whitelock surpassed Kieran Reid in number of caps with the national team and became the third All Black with the most caps in history. In turn, it is worth remembering that it was the youngest player to reach 100 games with the Maori combo.

The second line reached 128 caps and passed the 127 of the historic eighth. His first game wearing the black jersey was in 2010 in a match against Ireland replacing Brad Thorn, where he had the pleasure of scoring two tries. At the next meeting of that international window, he was named for the first time as a starter in the 26-16 victory against England.

With his country, Whitelock played the World Cup 2011, 2015 and 2019, adding a total of 15 meetings and being champion in the first two participations. In addition, it was enshrined in the Three nations of 2010 and in the 2012, 2013, 2014, 2016, 2017 and 2018 editions of the Rugby Championship.

Finally, it should be noted that to become the most capped All Black in history must first pass the 132 Games of Keven mealamu and then the record of 148 by Richie Mccaw.
