Brian John McKechnie (born November 6, 1953 in Goremarker, Southland, New Zealandmarker) was a "double All Black", that is, he represented New Zealandmarker in both rugby union and cricket. He played 26 matches for the All Blacks as a five-eighth and fullback, most memorably being the player to kick the winning penalty goal against Wales in 1978 when Andy Haden infamously dived out off a lineout near full time and was apparently awarded a penalty (the referee later said the penalty was for a completely separate incident) which would secure the "Grand Slam" for the All Blacks against the home country unions. As a cricketer, McKechnie played 14 one day games for the Black Caps, including the infamous "underarm match" against Australia in 1981, when McKechnie was the batsman who faced Trevor Chappell's underarm delivery in the final ball of the match.
