    Good call Somers


    I like his analysis of the games - (Nisbett) and knowledge of the rules. But you want some sort of quote that is going to stick with you forever - and maybe Quinn practiced them at home in front of the mirror - but they sounded good.

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

    Sky Sport said they're in the away (white) kit; they had the option of tossing a coin to decide which team would wear their traditional kits, but opted not to - after the debacle of 2007 I'm glad that hasn't been a topic of conversation this week.

    We didn't sing it in Maori when I grew up - so here are the words if you are like me and need them

    E Ihowa Atua,
    O nga iwi matou ra
    Ata whakarongona;
    Me aroha noa
    Kia hua ko te pai;
    Kia tau to atawhai;
    Manaakitia mai
    Aotearoa

    Was brilliant. Still like the old Haka tbh.

    NZ nervous early here, France playing well.

    Edit: re The Haka, I should say it was remarkable to see the French advancing on a confrontation.

    Yes!

    France competed against the throw for some reason and gives up a try - hopefully that will kill off the French spirit.

    That should settle the nerves, fantastic try. In saying that, France started quite impressively.

    So pleased it's not raining tonight - that's an element of randomness we can do without.
