RUMOUR | Argentina international set for Premiership switch

4. Keith Murdoch goes walkabout

 Murdoch played just three Tests for the All Blacks, but his name was etched in New Zealand rugby folklore after he became a recluse in the Australian outback following a scandal that ended his career.

The hulking prop, whose death aged 74 was confirmed by New Zealand Rugby in 2018, became the only All Black ever sent home from a tour in disgrace, after a 1972 bar brawl.

Rather than face the wrath of the New Zealand sporting public, Murdoch hopped off his flight in Singapore, caught a plane to Darwin in Australia’s Northern Territory and went walkabout for the rest of his life.
