RFU Championship XV vs Maori All Blacks Highlights - November 2012

Browner, where are you from ? Don't you know there're several Hakas in the Pacific Islands ?
This one should be the Timatanga.

KIA WIRI!
TU WHAKAMAUA!
KIA TINA!
Tina!
Hui e!
Taiki e!!

I TE T?MATANGA
KO TE KORE*
Ko Te P?-nui
Ko Te P?-roa
Ia, ha ha!

Wehenga m?tua**
Herenga t?ngata
He toa rangatahi
He toa rangatira.
Haka NZ Maoris

Timatanga

Whakaki te maunga
Tae ki te whenua
Hoki ki te rangi
Tae ki te pukerunga
Ia, ha ha!

Piki ake, piki ake
Ki te ara poutama
Ki ng? taumatatanga
e Wairua,
Hinengaro
Tinana
Aue, aue, aue, hi!

Start quivering your hands!
Stand sure,
Be firm!
Firm!
Get together!
Intermesh with each other!

In the beginning
there was nothingness,
then great dark forms
in the long night.


The separation of our parents**
The binding together of mankind
Young warriors
Noble warriors

Aim for the mountain
to arrive at the plain,
and also for the sky
to arrive at the hilltop


Keep on climbing
via the pathway of wisdom,
to achieve excellence
spiritually,
mentally,
physically.


* Te Kore, Te P? Nui and Te P? Roa are personified as primordial ancestors.
** Matua = the first parents, Ranginui and Papatuanuku, spirit and flesh.........

Michael Lynagh and HSBC Ambassador Jason Robinson react to England's loss

It looks to me as an outsider (i'm not english) that they don't use their backs 3.
They have to change the way they play to get theirs backs to score tries (Ashton scores when he's moving to centre during matches).

Also, all teams have injuries. England have, Australia have, South Africa have, France have, Ireland have. For instance, both Ireland and France lost their captains amongst others (BOD and Dusautoir).
There's something wrong going on in the English team and they have to sort this out, or they will loose all their test matches (apart from Fidji).

Samoa stun Wales with impressive win at the Millennium Stadium

IMO, Wales had not got over their defeat aggaints Argentina. And they knew Samoa beat them some times.
They were kicking too much and not playing the ball as much as they're used to do.
Samoans are very physical, as all PI are, adn everybody knows their tackles can be too high and/or borderline.

Scott Higginbotham cited twice for knee and head-butt on Richie McCaw

I mean about cheating, not about strikes...

Scott Higginbotham cited twice for knee and head-butt on Richie McCaw

Just a side note: I spent 3 weeks in NZ last year and i didn't meet a single NZ fan like baby Karl. Just to let you know Karl is not representative of his own people, as far as i know. It's true they're sensitive, they're also very honest.
From what i understood talking with them, as long as the referees don't penalised, it's ok

Scott Higginbotham cited twice for knee and head-butt on Richie McCaw

About Richie McCaw knee on Parra, Parra himself said after the match that McCaw would not hurt him if he didn't start to get up when McCaw arrived in the ruck. Parra thought this was unintentional. But the punch McCaw drew at Parra a seconde before was intentional.

About the NeoZelanders, they just love their team and players so much, you can't blame themn for that.

And in case of you're wondering, i'm French :)

Southland's Hoani MacDonald in induced coma following on-field collapse

Could someone here explain to me why on earth can so young professional players get an heart attack, cardiac arrrest, or whatever similar to that?

Wish him full recovery.

Gloucester's Andy Hazell sees red following alleged eye-gouge

Sure Pretzel, everybody can understand why Hazell reacted this way, although he punched several times, and not only once or twice.
As for the alleged eye gouge, i can't say from this video. So wait and see what ERC decides.

PS1:Most French supporters believe Attoub was innocent, because the photo was not crystal clear, and the player claimed innoncence all along his ban, and this made everyone doubtful.

PS2: As said above, it's the minnows clubs who have the dirtiest players in France. You won't see French players going into fights like that at international level, apart against England, maybe :o)
