The greatest Everyman hero in NZ sporting history. It was almost exactly like some Boy’s Own fantasy where some kid takes his boots to the big game and the call goes out for someone in the crowd, anyone, to rescue the home team coz they’re all coming off the field lame.

It was the worst game of rugby I’ve ever seen live. I think I might have actually had a psychotic break with reality when I saw The Beaver coming on. I should have believed :thumbup:

I can't believe that was 7 years ago. Good times.

The loose forward battle was the highlight for me.

They look similar, both not quickly recognised, both played limited games/minutes for the All Blacks.

I loved it.

Was great being in a NZ stadium 'cheering' on a guy when he came on as an injury replacement - when a year earlier he was the most hated dude in the country.

I'm 100% with naki on this one. Worst, most nerve-wracking game I've watched. I was at the cloud watching with some mates and we had all planned to either go out afterwards to celebrate or commiserate drunkenly. 10 minutes after the final whistle we looked at each other physically, mentally and emotionally drained and decided to just go home, utterly spent.

I’d agree that neglecting to red card the gouge, headbutt and kneedrop makes him a witness to a crime but not necessarily an accomplice, aiding and abetting at most

Agree 100% the only difference being I was watching it live at Eden Park. If we'd won in similar fashion to say, the semi final win over the Wallabies, we would have partied all night. Instead we headed back to a mates place feeling rather flat and after a brief debrief just headed home. Relief was the overwhelming emotion rather than elation.

I can't even described the sound that came out of my mouth at the final whistle.

Like most Kiwi's I went in to utter and complete despair when the Beaver came on. The final 10-15 minutes was the most frightening, intense and excruciating watch of my supporting life - I would rather watch semi 99 or quarters 07 than go through final 11 again.

Regardless of your thoughts on the ref - it was the most incredible battle up front.

But the right team won :nod:

Sunday afternoon here, my wife was having her weekly chiro session in the lounge and I had turned the tv to face my study area (no dividing walls). Apparently I was wailing and screaming when Beaver came on and then she thought I was going to have a heart attack during the final 20 minutes. She also suspected I might want a drink when it ended.

As it was, I slumped to the floor and lay there moaning for about 20 minutes, soaking in the sheer relief at finally winning the f**king thing after so long.

All Hail Beaver!!!!

Conversely, I drank all day (it was morning here) right through into the evening when I collapsed on a table of drinks smashing the whole round and getting aggressively ejected from the bar. But what a day.

Kneedrop by McCaw on Parra's head? Agreed, McCaw should have been off before halftime.
