Corne Krige elbow on Martin Johnson

Corne Krige elbow on Martin Johnson

As all English fans out there will remember, this was the infamous test where Krige got cited afterwards for a number of dirty incidents. In one crazy ruck, he even swung a punch that knocked out his own teamate Andre Pretorious!

Don't get me wrong, we have great respect for Krige. He's a legendary Springbok captain who always led from the front with his courageous never say die attitude, and off the field he's a true gentleman.

But, he did lose the plot at times, and actually ended his Super 12 career with suspension after inexplicably head butting a Chiefs player.

He was strangled and pulled down from the maul by Johnson in this incident, so you can understand the provocation, but it's fair to say that this Test was one that he'd rather erase from the history books if it were possible.
