Oh yeah it scared the shit out of me... especially that part where Tana slapped the back of one of the fowards... I was like :shockandawe:

Tonight has been such a good night in all ways.

I know you don't follow League Axver but Stacey Jones, NZ's greatest ever player played his last game with the Warriors tonight... he scored a try in the 76th minute to win the game 22-20.

That was just ... wow. I don't think I've quite gotten over that Haka. There was one shot where the camera was looking dead on at Tana and he's absolutely belting his lungs out with an almighty roar, and ... I could've just about wet myself.

I consider league to be rugby's pansy brother, but Stacey Jones is a great man. Glad to hear he ended his career on such a great note!

Shame about Mr Frenchie the ref (maybe he still holds a grudge over Mururoa?), but seven exceptional tries made that game a true standout. If you like gridiron and you'd seen that game, your mind would've been blown by how fucking better rugby is. Best game of the year, certainly.

No Axver, no grudge over mururoa

It was a good match but nothing extraordinary.

Meh, I peeked.

Oh well, at least we didn't get completely hammered! Even though I tend not to watch a game after I know that the Boks have lost (especially if the score is close, because that just makes me the moer in), I think I'll watch this one anyway to see the new Haka.

My prediction for the next match:

New Zealand 48 - 13 Australia

The Aussie bastards will be lucky if they can even get that.

Those new words to the Haka are great. I particularly like the "Our Supremecy will triumph" line. I can't wait until Saturday night to see if Tana is still as ape-shit insane as he was last week.

I wonder if they'll do the new Haka or not. They've said they're only going to use it for special occasions. But the lyrics are fantastic! Thanks for posting them, jacobus.

And I must say I really like Zihua's scoreline! If that happened ...

My prediction's quite conservative:

New Zealand 30 - 22 Australia

How much more special could the occasion be? The final game for both George Greegan and Eddie Jones. This is the cause for multiple Hakas I would think... maybe Vertigo it... one before the game and one after... possibly do it whilst waiting for Australia to form scrums, halftime, on the bus to and from the game.

Seriously though I would like it to be a "secret weapon" of sorts... to really fire up the boys and show anyone who stands opposite that they are really in it now.

I Forgot My Tip

New Zealand: 73 d. Australia: 2 careers, 3 more major injuries, loss of Bledisloe Cup and Tri Nations.

Hey, GibsonGirl, do you plan on watching this game (especially considering the winner of this determines whether NZ or SA gets the Tri-Nations), or can I go ahead and gloat about the results without worrying that I've blown it for you?

Oh my goodness, that's one of the funniest things I've read all day!

NZ vs Australia setlist:

1. Haka
2. Commence game
3. Try: Rokocoko, 20m run
4. Try: Mealamu, 5m
5. Try: Rokocoko, 80m
6. Try: Gear, 50m
7. Start half-time
8. Haka
9. End half-time
10. Try: Jack, pushover
11. Try: Weepu, 10m
12. Try: Muliaina, 35m
13. Try: Umaga, 25m
14. Australian penalty
15. Try: Howlett (sub), 50m
16. Try: MacDonald, 15m
17. End game
18. Haka

Final score:
New Zealand 70 - 3 Australia

Injury toll: 5 Australians, when the fifth was injured they had no sub to send on and played the last five minutes with only 14 players.

Personally, I'm really fond of that segue. Amazing opening, incredible speed ...
