    England have been brilliant to be fair

    The OTT commentary and media coverage is going to make this unbearable though.

    Calling a traditional ceremonial dance ‘silly’ is disrespectful.

    I’m assuming even you see how ridiculous your statement is now?

    The Haka is indeed a dance, if you choose to turn a traditional, ceremonial display into a marketing tool in a sporting context, then you do indeed open it up to criticism.

    If it’s Any consolation, I would find the idea of the English team Morris dancing pre match, or the Scottish lads having a ceilidh equally as silly.:50:

    i actually don’t have any issues with the press reaction.

    Its usually coincides with a 3-0 over Moldova or something similar in football, but they’re clearly one of the best rugby sides in the world and deserve praise. They looked a level above the All Blacks
