All Black wing Cory Jane says he
has no recollection of the night out he
and Israel Dagg had during the Rugby
World Cup in 2011 but denies the pair
went out to mix sleeping pills and energy
Jane and Dagg were spotted acting
curiously at a Takapuna Bar only a few
days out before New Zealand s quarter-
final against Argentina and it was
revealed last week the pair may have
indulged in mixing the pills with energy
drinks in a bid to create a legal high.
New Zealand Rugby chief executive
Steve Tew spoke about the night out for
the first time last week and said Jane and
Dagg had been involved in a childish
game to see who could stay up the latest
after taking sleeping pills. Tew also said
the pair were drinking on the night in
Jane, who spoke with reporters before
Hurricanes training in Newtown
yesterday, said the night began when he
and Dagg decided to take two sleeping
pills, after receiving a massage at the
team hotel, to help them sleep before a
big training session the next day.
e outside backs then decided to go
and grab dinner but Jane said the pills
took over and he had little memory of
" ere was no mixing with energy
drinks,"Jane said. " ere was no thought
of going out to the pub and drinking ...
We just happened to go out quickly to
get something to eat and they kicked in
and we were on autopilot and I woke up
the next morning thinking I d had the
best sleep ever and then found out that
we d gone out."
Jane said it was a scary position to put
himself in and acknowledged he had
used sleeping pills in the past to help
him cope with time zone changes but
had never indulged in mixing them with
e error in judgment between he and
Dagg was in the timing when they took
the pills, Jane said.
"We didn t really plan to go out, we just
made the mistake of taking the sleeping
pills instead of when we jumped in to
bed knowing we were going to go to
sleep. (Instead) we took them and then
quickly tried to go and get something to
eat and that was that."
Jane played down suggestions that
taking sleeping pills and mixing them
with energy drinks was a widespread
problem in rugby.
e New Zealand rugby league
team has recently come under scrutiny
following revelations that players mixed
sleeping pills and energy drinks during
last year s World Cup.
" ere s been rumours that a few of the
leaguies have done it but I can t tell you. I
wouldn t have a clue," Jane said. "I know
that two-and-a-half years that I did it
and I regret it." --- APNZ
Referees Francisco Pastrana, James
Leckie and Lorens Van der Mer we
have all paid the price for poor
performances in Super Rugby and
were stood down by governing body
Argentine Pastrana in particular was
heavily criticised over the weekend
and SANZAR referees head Lyndon
Bray wasted little time in following
through on his threat from last week.
Bray had said he would be
conducting a purge of referees by the
end of March in order to hold match
officials more accountable for their
"One of our core strategic objectives
is to grow the depth of the team that
is able to referee any game, any time ,"
Bray said in a SANZAR statement.
"In line with this, we have reduced
the size of the team heading into the
next phase of the competition and in
doing so, have recognised who has
performed to expectation and who
" e aim is to give this smaller
pool of referees more game time so
when it comes to the finals series,
there s a great deal of pressure around
who will earn those highly sought
after appointments and ... that the
competition is getting a consistent
high standard of refereeing."
It is the second successive week that
Bray has had to face questions about
referees after a series of controversies
and blunders in the early stages of the
Last week he posted several video
clips of contentious decisions on
the organisation s website, explained
the rationale behind some of the
decisions, and then determined
whether they were correct.
Pastrana paid the price for his
handling of the Blues 40-30 victory
over South Africa s Cheetahs at
Eden Park, where the home team
scored 17 unanswered points after
flanker Boom Prinsloo was dubiously
given a yellow card.
e Argentine also seemed to
ignore his television match official s
advice in awarding a contentious try
to George Moala when Prinsloo was
off the field.
e television official had said
Moala made a double move in
scoring, but the Argentine seemed
to misunderstand the advice and
awarded the Blues the try.
Pastrana has been replaced by Nick
Briant, who will now referee Friday s
game between Canterbury Crusaders
and Wellington Hurricanes in
South African referee Stuart Berry,
however, has escaped being dropped
from the now 15-strong panel
despite being heavily criticised by
visiting coaches for his performances
involving South Africa s Lions.
He controversially awarded a try
to the Lions in their 39-36 victory
over the Auckland Blues last week, a
decision that Bray later said had been
e Queensland Reds were also
incensed at some of Berry s decisions
in their 23-20 loss to the Lions in
Johannesburg on Saturday, when
the home side came back from 20-3
down to win.
Berry issued two yellow cards to
Reds players and had a 16-4 penalty
count in favour of the Lions.
"I ve never seen that in a game
before in my life," Reds coach Richard
Graham told Australian media on
Sunday of the penalty count.
"It would be fair to say that I felt
aggrieved at the end of the match
when we were down to six forwards
and a back on the scrum and we re
going forward and (the Lions
front row) stand up and we re not
rewarded." --- Reuters

Israel Adesanya loves cartoons,
once wanted to be a dance
choreographer and is also a

"I was dating this chick at the

After slowly making his way
through the national scene,
Adesanya moved again in 2010
when he turned up in Auckland

Now he has a chance to mix it
with the best on the planet
