All Blacks Captain Richie McCaw has been stepping out with a new girlfriend, it is being reported.
The man New Zealanders voted their ideal partner for lunch , is going out with Black Sticks midfielder Gemma Flynn, Newstalk ZB reports.
The relationship has been on the quiet for the last six months, and the blonde Olympian was yesterday named in the New Zealand women's hockey squad to tour Argentina.
The country's gossip mags are sure to be salivating with the prospect of another celebrity sports pairing on the dating scene.
McCaw's team-mate Dan Carter is married to former Black Sticks player Honor Dillon.
There had been reports that McCaw was dating an English woman who organises high-priced sex parties and is a friend of the Duchess of Cambridge.
Emma Sayle, 34, was described as 1.83 metres tall, a colonel's daughter, and the boss of Killing Kittens, where strictly vetted couples pay up to $300 each to attend sex parties.
