Rugby world cup .

    Rugby world cup ........

    Following complaints made to the International Rugby Board (IRB) about the All Blacks being allowed to motivate themselves by performing the 'Haka' before their games, other nations were asked to suggest pre-match rituals of their own. The IRB Rugby World Cup 2003 Organising Committee has now agreed to the following pre-match displays:


    a.. The England team will chat about the weather, wave hankies
    in the air and attach bells to their ankles before moaning about
    how they invented the game and gave it to the world, and how it's not fair that everyone still thinks New Zealand are the best team in the world.


    b.. The Scotland team will chant "You lookin' at me, Jimmy?"
    before smashing an Irn Bru bottle over their opponents'heads.


    c.. The Ireland team will split into two, with the Southern
    half performing Riverdance, while the Northerners march the
    Traditional route from their dressing room to the pitch, via their opponents dressing room.


    d.. Unfortunately the Committee were unable to accept the Welsh
    suggestion following representations from the RSPCA.


    e.. Argentina will unexpectedly invade a small part of
    opposition territory, claim it as their own "Las In-Goal-Areas" and
    then be forcibly removed by the match stewards.


    f.. Two members of the South African team will claim to be more
    important than the other 13 whom they will imprison between the
    posts whilst they claim the rest of the pitch for themselves.


    g.. The Americans will not attend until almost full time. In
    future years they will amend the records to show that they were in
    fact the most important team in the tournament and Hollywood will make a film called 'Saving No.8 Lyle'.


    h.. Five of the Canadian team will sing La Marseillaise and
    hold the rest of the team to ransom.


    i.. The Italian team will arrive in Armani gear, harass the
    female stewards and then run away.


    j.. The Spanish will sneak into the other half of the pitch,
    mow it and then claim that it was all in line with European "grass
    quotas". They will then curl up under the posts and have a kip
    until half time, when their appeal for compensation against the UK
    Government will be heard.


    k.. The Japanese will attempt to strengthen their team by
    offering good salaries to the key opposition players and then run
    around the pitch at high speed in a highly efficient manner before
    buying the ground (with a subsidy from the UK Government).


    l.. The French will declare they have new scientific evidence
    that the opposition are in fact all mad. They will then park
    lorries across the halfway line, let sheep loose in the opposition half(much to the delight of Wales!) and burn the officials.


    m.. The Australians will have a barbie before negotiating
    lucrative singing and TV contracts in the UK. They will then invite
    all their mates to come and live with them in Shepherds Bush.


    Aren't stereotypes fun.....

    pffft! are you mad?!? watching a bunch of guys hugging eachother all kicking their feet trying to move a ball somewhere is hilarious. Plus they have that little bit of like cheerleading/gymnastics when they throw the guys into the air after the ball. Thats pretty funny too. And when my sisters ex bf played, they were so bad, that they didn't care if they won or lost, they just wanted the other team to go home with ruined jerseys and a few broken bones... THAT was entertainging!

    It is better than football - there they roll around the floor in agony if their hair shows signs of split ends!

    Hey yeah, my brother suggested that the English team should perform a morris dance in response to the haka...imagine that, 15 sixteen stone men dancing around slappings sticks and jangling bells...that would break NZ concentration. Rugby is a true mans game, the only thing more manly is Australian Rules Football...its football in the broadest terms. Basically there is a ball. And a fight around it. A fight with a ball. God bless the Aussies!
