All-Blacks Poisoned?

AUCKLAND, New Zealand -- Former New Zealand coach Laurie Mains repeated on Monday his claim that the All Blacks were poisoned before the World Cup final against South Africa last year.


Mains said in a television interview to launch his autobiography that a South African waitress named "Susie" was paid to poison the team on the eve of the final, won 15-12 by the Springboks.
