In 2001, during the match between the New South Wales Waratahs and the British and Irish Lions, McRae was sent off for punching Irish fly-half Ronan O'Gara 11 times while O'Gara was on the ground, resulting in 8 stitches to O'Gara's eye. McRae received a seven-week suspension, the disciplinary panel stating "There was no dispute that McRae struck O'Gara repeatedly and caused an injury that required medical attention . . . The Committee concluded that this was a very serious incident, a repeated striking of a player on the ground who was in no real position to defend himself."
