Exactly. Nz would ask no such thing, the response was great. they turned up and that's what it's all about; accepting the challenge. it seems the only ones who dont understand this is the irb.quote name="lasbar" url="/t/264867/2011-rugby-world-cup/300#post_4907884"]You can't ask a team to be metaphorically threathened and provoked through the Haka and being completely passive about it...[/quote]

Just got a chance to watch the game. I missed it live and managed to avoid all references to the final. Sadly, it's not hard stateside, all I really had to do was avoid this thread.

I guess I'm happy with the result, my first coach was a Kiwi and I have a soft spot for the tradition of the All Blacks.

I really like the way the French play. Lots of passion and movement.

The arrow challenge to the Haka was great and as usual the stiffs don't "get it."

I think I need to buy some gear now, maybe check in on my local club side or see if I can catch a Berkeley game.
