Ronan O'Gara pummeled by Duncan McRae - Lions Tour 2001

Ronan O'Gara pummeled by Duncan Macrae - Lions Tour 2001

During the British & Irish Lions 2001 tour match against New South Wales in Australia, tempers frayed and Duncan McRae was deservedly sent off for repeatedly punching Ronan O'Gara in the face.

Subsequent fights broke out across the pitch and four yellow cards followed - two for each side - as the referee tried to get a grip on the game.

When the restart finally came, only 25 players were involved and the Lions got their first points of the half from a penalty kick by the unerringly accurate Wilkinson.

Final score NSW 24-41 Lions
