All Blacks prop Kane Hames got his own back on a journalist, after it was written that he wasn't a renowned scrummager.
Speaking to media this afternoon, Hames hit back at the suggestion from a Fairfax writer that he was light on experience and wasn't a "fearsome srummager".
"I read an article today - Marc Hinton - he said I'm not a renowned scrummager," Hames started.
"I know your job is to write a whole lot of things which is great."
"We've got to do a whole lot of research to make sure we get it right, it'd be great if you could too."
To Hinton's credit, he didn't shy away after being called out.
