OPINION: All Blacks hooker Andrew Hore gets his judgment from the judiciary tomorrow, but Taranaki readers have already issued their ruling.
And it's not good for the amber-and-black veteran.
In an online poll over the past two days, we asked readers if they felt Hore's actions in felling Welsh player Bradley Davies was an act of thuggery or simply looked worse than it was.
There were more than 800 responses to the www.taranakidailynews.co.nz poll and more than 500 respondents (67 per cent) felt the man who infamously shot seals and now stands accused of clubbing Wales was wrong to hit the player from behind and put him in hospital.
Just 33 per cent felt the incident looked worse than it was.
No doubt Hore will be hoping for a better result when he fronts up to the judicial panel.
