Fantastic! I've watched it again and again!

 

I am in awe of the Haka and the other Pacific Island teams who carry on this tradition, it certainly gets the blood pumping.

 

Am I correct in thinking Fiji also have a traditional haka type war dance called the Cibi?

 

If so I am looking forward to seeing it performed at 3 games,  on Saturday vs Hornets and vs Ireland at Spotland

And then again at Langtree vs the Aussies.

If I'd been on Cook's voyage I wouldn't have fancied it when I saw that sort of 'welcome' on the beach.  The players were a bit fierce as well!!!

 

Pugwash.

My missus comes from Niue Island which is a tiny dot in the Pacific Ocean somewhere between Tonga and Fiji. When Captain Cook and his merrymen approached the Island on one of his three trips to the area in the late 1700s (he never got back from his last one of course),the locals put up such a terrifying show on the steep cliffs that Cook turned away and called it Savage Island. Sometimes,I understand myself!!
