    I can't believe you are calling me out on the carpet...

    It was in France is all I remember - he broke the guy's nose with an upper cut during a scrum. I remember it distinctly as the commentators predicted that we would take care of business before it happened.

    "Winning" may not have meant them dominating on the score board - the run of the game was in their favour and it was about 20 minutes in.

    And this is what 20 years ago. I am surprised I remember this much.

    And I know you know your rugby and you know that Richard Loe is capable of this.

    Edit

    I suspect it was this game
    http://stats.allblacks.com/asp/teams...ABC&MT_ID=1922

    The record shows a front rower being replaced - It lists the replaced player as a three and Loe would have packed down against the 1 - so can't answer that part.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Course I do - his eyegouging of Greg Cooper was the biggest dog act I've ever seen on a rugby field, and he is scum as far as I'm concerned.

    What I am calling into question is your facts.

    Richard Loe : Fiery French can't get too foul any more - Richard Loe - NZ Herald News

    Here is an article by Richard Loe himself from that game according to him it was McDowell who did the deed.

    According to Loe it was justified as the French were up to tricks.

    Certainly was. One of my all-time least favourite All Blacks.
