A poll on Kiwi rugby website XtraMSN indicates that not every New Zealander believes Richie McCaw is as innocent as he protests.
McCaw has been embroiled in an outburst of allegations that he ‘cheats’ at the breakdown, allegations he predictably has refuted.
Kiwi rugby fans, however, aren’t so sure.
The virtually certain successor to Tana Umaga as All Black captain only received 52% stating that ‘he’s so good he’s innocent.’
A sizable 41% believes he pushes the limits too far, whilst 7% suggest jokingly he only oversteps for the Saders, but never the All Blacks.
McCaw’s Crusaders battle the Waratahs in a repeat of last year’s Super 12 final this weekend.
