This arrived courtesy of Norman at the Tanners, although I know it is not strictly Rugby, it is well worth watching a very moving ceremony (HAKA)

Wow,very impressive,that`s what hakas should be about,honouring their fallen mates,not just the odd time the Kiwis play,or the other mob who play that stupid fifteen a side game. They should send the Maoris out to fight the Taliban instead of pussy footing around like the Yanks and the Coaltion are doing now,don`t think the ragheads would be too keen taking them on!!

I think a comparison with our brave troops doing a great job in terrible circumstances is really fair DD. Rules of war have to be followed and whilst this may be viewed as 'pussy-footing' by some, departing from these rules can lead to soldiers being charged with serious offences like the five Marines now on murder charges.

Let's keep this on track people.

Pugwash.
