Twitter pays tribute to Dan Carter and Richie McCaw

A fitting end to two legendary careers.

Dan Carter and Richie McCaw bowed out of test rugby in style as New Zealand overcame Australia to retain the Rugby World Cup.

The New Zealand fly-half was on-hand to score two conversions, four penalties and a drop goal as the All-Blacks, while McCaw signs off as the first captain to lead his country to successive World Cup crowns.

Understandably, Twitter was full of praise for the legendary pair.
