In November 2013, Ryan Crotty will take part in a winning attempt at All Blacks against Ireland in Dublin.
The numbers tattooed on the inside of the right biceps Ryan Crotty are a reminder of valuable rugby memory.
The All Blacks representative could apologize whenever Irish fans hide his attempt to cause them so much in Dublin in 2013, but the ink on his arm has nothing to do with this glorious moment.
Tattoos are at a time when Crusaders beat Lions in the Super Rugby Final in Johannesburg in 2017, along with Crotty's club number.
Ryan Crotty and Dane Coles said that this week is a lot of motivation.
"It was like everyone said they would get one [a tattoo] if we won the Super Rugby final match and I was glad to give money where I got my mouth, "Crotty said," but that does mean something to me. "

It was the first time that ink had been done. But if he had decided to go into the buzzing needle sooner and get the reminder of that unforgettable trial in 2013, who could blame him?
It was his five pointer that gave Aaron Cruden a chance to kick the winning conversion, allowing All Blacks to escape with a 24-22 victory and to destroy the hope of Ireland to beat Kiwi on Irish soil for the first time.
"It tried to be cool, but I did not do much," says Crotty. "I just took off the 5m ball and fell across the line, it was nice to make a winning season for All Blacks but I did not do much."
The exhaustive All Blacks exercise at the Dublin Gym was recorded by several of Led Zeppelin classics.
Maybe Crotty's getting a little worse. He asked that in the second spell he would start the bench when he saw that Ireland had set the lead 22-7 in half, had to run a support line and catch this peach from the Dan Coles Pass near touch.
Crotty clearly remembers that all black power and conditioning coach Nic Gill shout directions to him from the sideways like All Blacks relentlessly denigrating their way up the field, connecting the phases and forcing Ireland back the pedal.
"Probably I was still blowing because you do not have much time to get your second wind (as a replacement) – that's probably the reason I was on the wing," Crotty recalled.
"I picked myself up a couple of sleeves and Nic Gill screamed at me and told me to get out." "Before I realized their wing was inside, Colesy relaxed his arms."
When Crotty ran through the trill, he still screamed. This time it was No. 8 Kieran Read and screamed at him to approach the places to ease Cruden's transfer.
"I tried, but the defense got fast," says Crotty.
Deadlifts, squats and pulldowns were all on the All Blacks cards in advance at the Dublin Gymnasium.
In order to suppress Irina, Referee Nigel Owens allowed Cruden another attempt to change; Owens believed that the Irish players had moved before trying their first kick.
"I had to apologize to many Irish men and women because he had tried," said Crotty, 30, "They are always very friendly and courteous when they approach him."
Kiwi coach Joe Schmidt is a strong candidate to replace Steve Hansen, who is in charge of All Blacks.
With Sonny Bill Williams not reaching a shoulder injury – could be suitable for a match against Italy the following weekend – Crotty should start in the second fifth for the 44th test cap against Ireland in Dublin on Sunday morning.
"How should you not be thrilled if you have this opportunity to play? These are the two best teams in the world who have been involved here," Crotty said. Amazing atmosphere, amazing stadium, great fans. "You do not have to dive into the past to find the desire to play and play well."
All black midfielder Ryan Crotty says that even with Sonny Bill Williams's injury, he has a lot to offer to the team.
