Re-enact the anglo-boer-zulu wars....we already have the impi (dry field only please)....just need vellies for the afrikaans okes, and khaki for the red necks.

Was performed next to a French highway too.

Keep it for test matches, allow opposition teams to respond as they see fit....instead of forcing them to watch the pageantry of the haka.....soon opposition will be forced to applaud when it's over.

I personally don't think the AB's look as strong as previous years. I wasn't hugely impressed by their showing against an under-strength France. Let's not forget the number of red and even yellow cards dished out at critical times during the games. The series 3-0 result doesn't really give a true reflection, IMHO. We know the French are temperamental, and thus if they lose momentum will fold. I was, however, quite impressed by the Aussies, who really did quite well against the Irish, and who are the best NH team by a fair margin. I am really interested to see what the AB's do against Ireland next game, but also against Aus this weekend. Argies will be a big unknown, but with a brand new coach, it may be a little too early. Hopefully the Bokke can deliver some decent results. They definitely have had enough time to prepare...

Be interesting to see if any of the RC SH sides can come close to the AB's this year. Having played OZ in the summer I thought they were v good and expect them to be the AB's closest challenger, i guess we will have to wait and see what the Boks offer up. I am hoping for an exciting championship........as a neutral, may the best team win / come 2nd!!!!!

The Springboks are relatively young and inexperienced compared to the All Blacks, but do not underestimate the Springboks.

So he doesn't want to do the hardstuff......just wants to be involved in all the glory stuff?

There's a huge clue right there as to why Hansen hasn't picked him.
