    The northern hemisphere sides tend to respond well, hoping for a bit of pageantry this World Cup.

    Favorite of mine is the Tongan response in 2003, interrupting the Haka with the Sipi Tau was hair on back of neck stuff.

    They showed footage of that game today. Caleb Ralph looked like a budget player. Leon Macdonald looked like Leon Macdonald. Dan Carter looked incredible.

    The best response to the haka would be a combination French Flying V ending up six inches from the ABs, in your face Irish style.

    I've always felt that since the haka is literally black magic (makutu) it would make for excellent theatre for the opposition to respond in kind.

    The Scots could all line up and replicate the arse bearing scene from Braveheart.

    Very good article that, Dawson is basically a real life twitter banter account, like Swann a fantastic talent when playing but an annoying as hell twit since retirement.
