    Which former rugby league player turned All Black is reknowned as one of the greatest ever goal kickers in Union; often booting goals from halfway without shoes as a party favour?

    Bob Scott used to kick goals with bare feet in the 50s but I doubt it's him.

    Good to see your bias doesnt stop outside TFC...

    a few points...

    Bob Scott was never poached.. he played Rugby when he joined the Army...

    he wasnt a "former rugby league player turned All Black" as he played Rugby for a few years before being selected for the All Blacks.... and is one of MANY All Blacks and Kiwis to have played both... most League and Rugby players in NZ think the hate from both sides about the other is small mided drivel...

    And while he word have been one of the greatest goalkickers of his generation... and an outstading full back he was not even close to being one of the greatest ever... he is remembered more for the kicks he missed in South Africa then those he got.

    I didn't know that. Anyway, when the All Blacks beat Tonga 102-0 in 2000, name the 4 players who made their debuts for the All Blacks.
