In the 49-0 thrashing of the Springboks by the Wallabies in the 2006 Tri-Nations, flyhalf Jaco van der Westhuizen of the 'Boks had a shocker of a game.
This was one of many screw-ups from that match that got him dropped by Jake White.
Back home in South Africa he got absolutely ripped to shreds by the public, especially for that squeaky voice of his when shouting at the Ref that it was a dropkick. A moment he'd rather forget no doubt.
Jaco is back in action in the Super 14 however with the Bulls, who're currently competing for a spot in the semis. He's having a good season too, mainly coming on from the bench as an impact player, and sporting a rather impressive beard.
