exactly! nobody has one. silly imo. they have threatened before not to do it ever again after the boos and disrespect from england, then we do this. i know people on here have an opinion of the "wru were right, all blacks wrong", but, honestly, what was the point?

word has it that eventhough it was asked by the wru few weeks back, they kept it from the players, and told them on match day! question was on radio wales, "surely graham henry isnt that cruel!"? saved him a pre match team talk though!!!

OK, you want an answer?

Let's turn the question around and ask you to justify the AB position then.

Why, after all the numerous occasions we've played them before, why did the NZRFU want it different in the 1980s when traditionally the Haka was performed before the anthem? It was Wayne Shelford's team that changed things and demanded that the Haka not be answered. As many have pointed out, the Haka is a Maori challenge that should be answered. It is a recent occurence that it should be the last word, and an arrogant one at that.

We've had occasions when teams have turned their backs on the Haka, ignored it completely whilst doing tackling practise and the famous Irish walk towards the Haka ending up inches from the leader's nose. In all these examples, the NZRFU claimed that they were insulted. What they are saying is that you must meekly stand and watch and not respond. And we're wrong?

Build a bridge and get over it.

It's not as if we're going to beat them anytime soon whether they do the Haka or not, thats what worries me.

I thought it would be more respectful to them if we answered their traditional war dance with our National anthem. Seeing as that is something we are passionate about and traditionally sing it before going into 'battle' with them.
