    I'd just like to add my 2 pence into the sporting arena, by pointing out that the Mighty Men In Black have ended their 2005 season by winning:

    • The Tri-Nations (vs. Australia & South Africa)
    • The Bledisloe Cup (vs. Australia)
    • The Cook Cup (vs. England)
    • The Lions Tour (3-0!)
    • In Great Britain and Ireland (Undefeated vs. England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland)

    (Not to mention demolishing France in Paris last November 45-6!)

    Hail to King Henry, and our All-Conquering All Blacks!


    KA TU TE WANAWANA
    KI RUNGA KI TE RANGI E TU IHO NEI, TU IHO NEI, HI!
    PONGA RA!
    KAPA O PANGO, AUE HI, HA!


    Excerpt from KAPA O PANGO - the NEW Haka...
    Our supremacy will triumph,
    And will be placed on high.
    Silver fern!
    All Blacks!

    And you beat Australia yesterday in the Rugby League Tri-Nations 24-0.

    It's been a great effort, the All Blacks at the moment look unbeatable. If the world cup was today they'd be sure to win.

    Edit: Damn I see you started another thread for that!

    I had the honour to see the All Blacks at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.

    A really great game and the stadium must be one of the top venues to see a rugby match.

    And on Wednesday I met Michael Jones (Ex- All Black and now coach of Manu Samoa).

    A great achievement and a great team. Surely now Tana will not retire!?
    I was happy to see that England seem to be getting back to what could be considered form, as they put up a decent fight against the All-Blacks.

    I just hope NZ haven't peaked too early - that said though they seem to have great strength in depth.

    I still think that Japan should have been picked to host the 2011 world cup - rugby need to reach out to other (non-commonweath) nations.
