Kiwis get cash carrot

The All Blacks will earn big bucks if they shed their chokers’ tag at next year’s World Cup.

Richie McCaw’s men will be paid NZ$100 000 (R520 000) each if they win the tournament or $35 000 (R270 000) if they finish second.

The All Blacks have failed to win the World Cup since 1987 (when the Boks, the only other strong rugby nation in world rugby at the time, weren’t there), and were knocked out by France at the quarter-final stage in 2007.
