The country's gossip mags will be salivating with the prospect of another star sporting pairing on the dating scene.

The NZ Herald reports All Black captain Richie McCaw is going out with Black Sticks midfielder Gemma Flynn.

It's understood the relationship's been on the quiet for the last six months, and that the couple spent Christmas together.

The young Black Sticks star, who played at the London Olympics last year, was yesterday named in the New Zealand women's hockey squad to tour Argentina.
