Will England be able to pull this series away from the aussies???

I vote for Australia,...never write the aussies away?

Remember an all out england still is just about capable to get it over a totally off Aussies.

I'm rooting for England.

This is a damn good comeback for the English. A few years back they literrally sucked. Lets see how they perform vs Pakistan.

Pakistan is the most inconsistent team to date. We can defeat the best, then lose from Bangladesh... :D

Yeah but they're blasting away the Australian bowlers, When the English come to Pak, the game will be on.

I look at it differently.

Bangladesh is the most inconsistent team.

They are supposed to lose and then they beat Pakistan, India and Australia! :tongue:

Which the current All Blacks perform.
Here's the classic one


Ringa pakia
Uma tiraha
Turi whatia
Hope whai ake
Waewae takahia kia kino

English Translation:
Slap the hands against the thighs
Puff out the chest
Bend the knees
Let the hip follow
Stamp the feet as hard as you can.

Ka Mate! Ka Mate!
Ka Ora! Ka Ora!
Tenei te ta ngata puhuru huru
Nana nei i tiki mai

Whakawhiti te ra
A upane ka upane!
A upane kaupane whiti te ra!
Hi!!

English Translation:
It is death! It is death!
It is life! It is life!
This is the hairy person
Who caused the sun to shine
Keep abreast! Keep abreast
The rank! Hold fast!
Into the sun that shines!
and here's the one they performed for the first time against the boks at Carisbrook last weekend


Kapa o pango kia whakawhenua au i ahau!
Let me become one with the land
Hi aue, hi!
Ko Aotearoa e ngunguru nei!
This is our land that rumbles
Au, au, aue ha!
And it's my time! It's my moment!
Ko Kapa o Pango e ngunguru nei!
This defines us as the All Blacks
Au, au, aue ha!
It's my time! It's my moment!
I ahaha!
Ka tu te ihiihi
Our dominance
Ka tu te wanawana
Our supremacy will triumph
Ki runga ki te rangi e tu iho nei,
tu iho nei, hi!
And will be placed on high
Ponga ra!
Silver fern!
Kapa o Pango, aue hi!
All Blacks!
Ponga ra!
Silver fern!
Kapa o Pango, aue hi, ha!
All Blacks!

Murdoch owns sky as well, so you'll probably get it, just not live. Be worth watching though, because it's a home game the sound fx on the haka will be good, and it'll be a great game. (if you're an AB supporter that is, we'll slaughter the Wallabies, touch wood)

When is it due?

I was watching the win against South Africa (?).

Hope you guys win.

Whats the odds? ;)

Why is it called All Blacks?

When I was in school, my school was one of the rare ones which played Rugby.

In Calcutta we still have rugby.

A great game.

Kick off is 7.30pm gmt + 12hrs, odds are currently $1.11 for All Black win, $6 for Wallabies win ;) . There are better odds on offer for half time full time score and margins.

Last weeks game against the Springboks (South Africa) was a beauty, two best teams in the world, a really hard grinding game with great play by both sides. The Wallabies on the other hand have 17 of their current players injured (they're all getting old) and so are regarded as easy beats.

They're called the All Blacks because thats the colour they wear, I think the English press first dubbed them that in 1905.

Good to hear that it's still played a bit in India, look forward to seeing an Indian team in the 2007 World Cup! :biggrin:

True true. A fit Aussie 'n unmotivated Aussie team > fully fit and super motivated England team. Aussies don't even need the motivation, they just lack some fitness.
