62 13 a massacre I was for New Zealand because I love the Hakka and apparently it works!
My father was from the Southwest of France so he played Rugby rather than soccer and I enjoy watching the game . It is on the rough side but I love it.

sorry didnt want to spoil the enjoyment for you.was a stuffing.buy i cant say anything in english and we got knockrd out last week at home !! think the hakka now is just a spectacle they been doing it too long and everyone is used to it. maybe england dancing round a maypole or the french guillotine needs to be introduced !!
im a football fan but got to appreciate way the rugby players seem to respect the refs.very few confontation, red and yellow cards. good sportsmanship which unfortunately seems a thing of th past. two good games tomorrow so will get up early. newcastle v norwhich doesnt appeal too much..bonsoir

Do not worry after showing it would show tonight they change the program..
I still love the Hakka. The first time I saw it was when it was done was in a conference room when we the company I worked for took over a New Zealand co..that as pretty impressive. The maypole dance done by a bunch of rugby players would be something to see, the guillotine maybe a little too drastic.
Enjoy the games tomorrow..Bon soir.

BTW. It's a Haka, not a Hakka.
I am currently watching the best match of the past two days.
Australia vs Scotland. Beer Beer

pretty incredible, they are worried about the tv ratings as the Europeans or other northern hemisphere countries may not watch the southern hemisphere teams..but may the best win.

OK, I'm going to inflict my favorite Rugby story on you. Back in my misspent youth, I dated a Rugby player from another town, and attended many a tournament.

A friend and I were hanging out at a local club when a group of guys came up to us and asked if we liked the Broncos.

My friend said, “Broncos, is that the basketball team or the football team?”

I said, “Football is for sissies. You want to see tough, play Rugby. None of that playing for a few minutes and then being replaced by the other squad and going and sitting on the bench. The same team plays the whole damn game – no substitutions. And they wear shorts and jerseys – no helmets and padding. You break and arm? They tape it to your side and you keep playing or your team plays one man short. I know a guy who finished the game with half his ear, bleeding the whole time. Now that's tough!”

One of the guys was laughing hysterically and finally walked over and hit his head against the wall. It was Haven Moses, a wide receiver for the Denver Broncos.

They have a most of the time rugby channel on shaw. Quite entertaining inspite of the fact I have no clue what is going on.
