Tony Woodcock has had his career ended prematurely due to a hamstring tear.

54 games for his province North Harbour
149 Super rugby games for Blues and Highlanders
118 games for the All Blacks (102W,15L,1D)

Has won a world cup, a bunch of 3/4 N,
a Super rugby title
and came back early from All Black leave to win the Ranfurly Shield

Most capped AB prop
Has scored 10 tries
Has scored 2 tries in one game
Scored only try in 2011 World Cup final

At his peak probably the best LH in the world

Over heard talking to his wife after the bad news "ah well these things happen'

He's not running off anywhere to cash in but heading off to his farm.
What a good rugby bloke

Three Iconic Amigos gone in this WC so far.

Enjoy the serenity of the farm Tony. His face told the story just before he came off.... 'I'm too old for this schidt.'

It is all ways a shame when a player as to retire through injury.

I do wish him all the best for the future.

Remember that RWC final try recently reprised by McCaw against SA. Jumpers create a gap in the middle of line out for player TW or RM to scoot through catch the ball and nip over to score. Is it legal? Apparently so.
