Sam Whitelock is the youngest New Zealander and the fastest player in history to reach 100 test appearances. It took Whitelock just 8 years and two months to reach the Centurion milestone.
During that time, Whitelock has enjoyed a stellar All Blacks career. He was a crucial part of the 2011 and 2015 Rugby World Cup winning teams, and is one of only twenty players to have won the tournament twice.
In 2017, Whitelock was recognised as the New Zealand Rugby Player of the Year.
