Title: Aussies want the Haka banned

It has become the echo which follows each crashing Wallabies defeat - the haka should be banned because it gives the All Blacks an advantage over rivals.

The latest mouthpiece for the claim is Australian Fox Sports commentator Greg Martin, who claimed the haka gave the All Blacks an "unfair physical advantage".

"The whole game of rugby is about male dominance over another man, and they're yelling and screaming and threatening and you've to sit there and go: 'Umm, this'll be finished soon'," Martin said on The Rugby Club programme.

"What's so good about it? If you want to go see entertainment go to the theatre ... that's what it is; it's singing and dancing."

The Wallabies were soundly beaten by a dominant All Blacks side in last Saturday's Bledisloe Cup test in Auckland, losing 30-14.

Former All Black and Sky sports commentator Stu Wilson said Martin's claim had to be taken as what it was - a wind-up.

Wilson said Martin had shown his true feelings about New Zealand when he organised a charity rugby match which raised more than $600,000 for Christchurch.

Okay who wants to kiss there boo-boos?

Anyway what I really think is this is a low Aussie psych out - They'll be in it to win it in regard to the RWC!

The haka should be left on the f**king marae with all the other bulls**t protocol.
I can't stand my country being known for some stupid stoneage dance which has no relevance in a modern society. I was disgusted when the first international round of the A1 GP cup had a bunch of darkies with vivid marker pen scribbled on their faces and their plastic grass skirts and fat man tits hanging out lurching around a race track surrounded by the peak of technology waving f**king sticks and poking their tongues out  :rolleyes:

So they are blaming their loss on the haka?

Maybe just maybe they lost because they didnt perform to the best of their ability?

f**king pathetic excuse, why not just ban all national anthems from being played before the games?
