It was an awesome game, one of the best I've seen in some years. And the right team won too IMO.

p.s. I've just lol'd and made the mental connection that giving someone 'the finger' is rude, so what does that make the haka's team-load of fists...

Isn't the gesture similar to the Italian one? With about the same general implications? Just not down on the knee.

it is similar to a Kozakiewicz gesture:

originally:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bras_d'honneur

But there is a difference as of where the other hand holds the first one.
Have the Kiwis had a reason to show it?

I seriously doubt it has anything to do with Italian, French or any other European gesture but you'd need a Kapa Haka to tell you the meaning, if it even has any specific meaning.

It was a fantastic result. I was pretty confident at half time, less so for much of the second half, feeling better with the drop goal and it was all over with the Barrett try.

Watched it in a local bar, crowd was great. Mixture of Aussies and Kiwis with a few Brits and locals for good measure. At the end of the night a group from the place next door performed a Haka.

Tries won the match.

I was watching peacefully in a bar till half time, when a mega size guy sat near me and started to curse the Kiwis and the Ref and kept smashing his beer mug on the table. I had to quietly retreat to another corner :)

https://www.facebook.com/gottalovenz/vi ... 409779328/ if you want to know the meaning of the Haka the movement and words then watch the video it's nothing to do with any other country gestures or otherwise its purely raw culture. If you need to put words to the above action then it would be "we will rise to the challenge always"!

Apart from the Kiwis, I think the Samoans are the only other team to have a challenge.

Yeah, some Aussies shouldn't be allowed out. Most, actually. :D :D

Tries make for an engaging match. There is little as boring as a 'safe' kicking game, where all the scoreline comes from penalties/conversions.
