McCaw, Muliaina to Set All Blacks Rugby Record Against Ireland

Nov. 18 (Bloomberg) -- New Zealand rugby captain Richie McCaw and full-back Mils Muliaina were selected to play their record 93rd Test match against Ireland on Nov. 20.

The pair had tied the mark of 92 Tests set by former All Blacks captain Sean Fitzpatrick in the 49-3 win over Scotland five days ago.

Top-ranked New Zealand has played Ireland 23 times since 1905 with the Irish yet to win a Test.
