Yup. That's exactly how you should react - they do it to intimidate the other team so shouldn't be allowed to get away with it.

Next time you're in first beer's on me, but you're gonna have to drink mine too (I quit drinkin' years ago). I never played summer 7's, but mainly because I hate 7's rugby. Why play 7's when you can play 15's?

The Haka is a challenge, and I think it needs to be answered, like the Tongan's did in the RWC, or the team I forget which, who advanced during the Haka. It's a mind game intended to intimidate, mind games need to be used by the opposing team to gain their own advantage. Not that it matters, the All Blacks will clean them up anyway.

I like the Haka, its tradition for the ABs and like most traditions, it should be respected. I don't have a problem w/ opposing teams doing their thing to upset the ABs (like walking towards em or even turning their backs, or better yet standing there after the ABs finish). But I think fans should be respectful & not whistle, etc, during it.

Carry on kids & I apologize to Mercury for my 10 yr old comments.

All the Best in 2013 & Rugby Forever

Tonga says lets get it on Beaches



And of course I can't leave out one of my favorite ABs Tana, doing the great Kapa O Pango

Which was if you ask me - I thought that was awesome, but then again I'm a Bleus fan. I think Chabal is awesome. But it's all in a day's rugging.

Dusatoir. That World Cup Final game forever cemented his legend within my mind.

I'm going to get a France jersey one of these days simply based on his performance in that game.

Seriously. A largely unrecognized genius in the game.

Made more tackles on his own against the ABs than the entire AB team made against France. He was making a point having not been included in the original squad for the tournament. I think he made it well.

My friends were in NZ during the RWC in '11. They caught some quarter & semi final matches. My buddy was in Auckland partying w/ some Kiwi's and he said French fans didn't take to losing so much, so he bought them a drink to ease the pain
