In this morning’s game between the Sharks and the Crusaders in Christchurch, we saw All Blacks and home captain Richie McCaw being yellow carded for a professional foul deep in his half with the Sharks on attack.
It reminded me of this hilarious skit by the New Zealand comedy duo of Bill and Ben on Pulp Sport, the low budget sports skit comedy show that has received rave reviews from all who’ve seen it.
This particular skit plays on the common belief around the world that Richie McCaw plays the line so close that he is in fact cheating. Most of that comes from the fact that McCaw is so good at what he does, but that debate will rage on for years to come.
As you’ll see here, losing the coin toss and dressing up in a Springbok jersey while holding a sign like this in Christchurch is not a good idea.
