A cap is something that can be earned in playing rugby. When a player represents their country in an officially sanctioned match (test match) against another country, the player is said to earn a "cap". The International Rugby Board (IRB) governs rugby union (not rugby league) worldwide and is responsible for sanctioning official matches for that code. The term comes from earlier times when actual caps were given on the occasion. The caps were round and resembled a yarmulke in shape, but usually bigger in size. The cap usually had a tassle, badge, and embroidered dates on it. One often hears of a "capped player," which means the player has represented their country. A "well capped" or "highly capped" player has done so many times. The most highly capped player of all time is Jason Leonard, who represented England 114 times. Only four players have broken 100 caps. The term is sometimes used to indicate how many times a player has represented their club or province, but is then indicated as such.
