McCaw keen on a big night in Christchurch - and no rain

5:40 pm on 15 June 2012

The captain Richie McCaw says his All Blacks don't need any extra motivation to show up in tomorrow night's second test against Ireland in Christchurch.

Both sides held their captain's runs in miserable conditions at the new Addington stadium, where tomorrow night marks the return of Test rugby to Christchurch since August 2010.

McCaw says it'll be a special night - and he's hoping for not just strong home town support, but some nicer weather.
