    If the authorities are so worried about the response to the Haka then the logical thing to do is ban it (not my preference btw) and let the ABS do what every other o****ry has to, and butcjer the national anthem then just kick off.

    Went to the parade yesterday in Wellington. Felt good to personally clap for the ABs and have them just 8 feet away notice you and clap back.

    I wanted the players to be bigger for some reason but they seem like normal blokes. Would have been nice to see SBW in the flesh.

    The players seemed to genuinely enjoy the parade and seemed to handle it really well. I expect if you are an international sportsperson you must develop excellent people skills.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    I have it on very good authority that many of the players had not scrubbed up very well from the festivities of the previous few evenings. Not every player was in this boat, but most of them were.

    Heh. Should have seen the Reds boys after the Super Rugby win at the fan day the next day. All were there physically. Doubt all remember it.

    A better and less deviant authority than that.
