Favourite Son 23 man squad

For a bit of fun and to create some discussion, I have put together a list of 23 recent players who were blessed with the opportunity of donning the candy stripes of the greatest district rugby club in the combined Sutherland and St George area, the Southern Districts Rebels.

Might want to have a word to Twickers management who offer the chance to perform the Haka at a bargain price of £1,200.

Too triggered to get it.

What with evidence. Nah much easier to quote people out of context to scratch that itch that won’t go away.

Coming for the cup? Irish knock off New Zealand 16-9

If only that was accurate.

Better team won. Congrats to Ireland.

"If it bleeds we can kill it": Can anyone bring down the All Blacks?

Take that up with World Rugby.

If I squint I think I can see abuse in that last sentence, but then again it might not be there.

I heard that the Maori were using it before the ABs but can’t confirm.

Thanks for that. I would like to add that I identify as a kiwi and Australian having spent the first 12 years in NZ, but to this day I have yet to perform a haka. If an appropriate situation occured I would.
Much like your examples, the haka performed for RTS winning the Dally M medal was a sign of respect and congratulations no different than others clapping. I don’t get the angst.

Full story please.

I think that full Suncorp Stadium cheering may have drowned out Fun Bus’ complaining about two PI sides performing a war dance in Australia. Very arrogant of those 40k people not to hear him out.

I know you’re a stickler for evidence, so?

Then stop charging people to perform it in ‘your’ stadium for team building exercises.

Yeah Keiran Read arrogantly said England can do what ever they want in response to the Haka as he believes it adds to the spectacle. Buckets.

Jacko you may be confusing this with the RFU national stadium appropriating the Haka to charge thousands of pounds for people to perform it as a team building exercise. Seems weird that some would have an issue with actual kiwis performing it in that stadium.

Cool story, must be true if you keep saying it.

I'm totally over the Haka

Get a refund.

I'm totally over the Haka

Rhys, sorry but I see it no different than a losing team going to clap their fans support. Why is one tradition of clapping ok but the other attention seeking?

I'm totally over the Haka

How about banter deficiency then?

I'm totally over the Haka

Always makes me smile when the Bus calls someone else a hypocrite.

I'm totally over the Haka

Didn’t realise you studied in NZ.

I'm totally over the Haka

Pretty sure in those 1,000 years England strutted in to many countries without respect to the locals. But please get upset about a 2 minute dance.

I'm totally over the Haka

The Fun Bus residence must be a mirrorless environment. Reading all of his comments here have been thoroughly enjoyable.

I'm totally over the Haka

Maybe say it a third time, you almost have us convinced.

I'm totally over the Haka

Get’s popcorn.
