New Zealand’s Andrew Hore has established himself as a true hard man of rugby in his side’s crushing 33-10 victory over Wales in Cardiff.
Just seconds after the kick off the All Black hooker, who stands just six-feet-tall, was brave enough to knock down six-foot-six opponent Bradley Davies.
Despite the Welsh second row menacingly showing his back to the Kiwi hooker, Hore was not remotely intimidated, launching a wonderfully brave punch to fell his man.
“I’ll go toe to back with anyone,” said Hore. “Whether six-foot-six or seven-foot-nine, you have you back on me and I’ll take you on. Bring it. Bring it BACK!”
Hore, also a tough seal killer, has firmly put himself amongst the pantheon of hard rugby men.
