Richie McCaw and Gemma Flynn suit up!

The athletic duo dress up as their heroic alter-egos to back the boys in black

We all know rugby legend Richie McCaw cuts a handsome figure in black, but it turns out the All Blacks captain looks equally dashing in dress-up!
Richie’s long-time partner Gemma Flynn has shared a cosy photo of the two in costume as Batman and Catwoman. Gemma’s black pleather outfit came complete with a matching cat-eared head piece, while Richie’s version included the familiar Batman symbol displayed on the chest.

“Backing black,” Gemma captioned the picture.
“Not long to go now … Can’t wait!”
Gemma has currently been busy touring the South Island with her Black Sticks team, but the photo seems to hint that the talented 25-year-old will soon be joining her beau in London to cheer the team on, as they prepare for their quarterfinal face-off against France this weekend.
Meanwhile, Richie took a break from training to attend a special Rugby World Cup reception at Buckingham Palace yesterday, where he met the Queen and Prince Harry.
"It's been a while since we've been here, I think it was about 2005 when we were last here," he told Sky outside the palace.
"You are getting to the business end of the tournament now and this adds a bit of spice to it, but the chance to do this is pretty cool."
