Well ii dont know with no color on kiwis team...I?m just not comfortable something seems amiss . us supporters of Trump are suspicious of large gangs of white men grouping together.....especially kicking balls. Just seems a bit Jim Crow to us. Wish you guys were a bit more progressive that?s all.....fingerpoint....we?re watching you

Recon,

Maybe its you that should pay a little more attention to what's going on here....speak out a bit, about the white supremacist like richard spencer (?) who states clearly...this is country should be all white...you sound foolish!

Why the hell should one black person go to war and die for the likes of this man...or don't you give a damn...

Just Some Thoughts!

C'mon, give Michael a break. I'm assuming his remarks about the All Whites were in jest. Of course he does like playing the 'agent provocateur'.

The name 'All Blacks' for our national rugby team dates back well over a hundred years and originally referred to their playing uniform. Now it has become synonymous with the quality of the most successful rugby team ever.

Other sports codes in NZ have borrowed variations of the name, riding on the coat-tails of its success. Hence we have the All Whites (soccer), the Wheel Blacks (wheelchair rugby), the Tall Blacks (basketball), the Black Sticks (hockey) and even for a while the Black Cocks (badminton)!!

Ironically the All Blacks would have been nearly exclusively all white in their early days, but Maori soon found an aptitude for the sport and have long been welcomed into the team (caused some brouhaha when they toured apartheid South Africa). More recently Polynesians of Tongan, Samoan, Fijian and Cook Islands descent have become a majority of our best players.

The game in Paris is about to kick off as I write this. The team includes such commentator's nightmares as Ofa Tu'ungafasi, Waisake Naholo, Rieko Ioane, Vaea Fifita, Nepo Laulala and of course well-know beans man Lima Sopoaga. Not quite all black, but certainly mostly brown!

BTW the soccer game was a scoreless draw - a moral victory for us as Peru are ranked 10th in the world and NZ 95th

So it's all on for Lima on Thursday, where the Peruvians will get their beans.

And so sorry to hear that the greatest nation on earth has already been knocked out of participating in the World Cup. perhaps you could ask your president what he intends to do about that!

I don't know what you mean, Steve. The greatest nation on Earth still has a chance of making it, after tieing with Honduras. Although, our form has been pretty ordinary this year - it doesn't bode well for us, even if we make it to Russia. Oh, oops. Did you mean the other greatest nation on Earth?

As far as the all-blacks go, I think their goose is cooked. They got done in a Bledisloe match for the first time since 2015. It's all down hill from here... especially since we're gonna start feeding the scrums underarm.

Jan,

What are you talking about?

Never mind...I really don't care since
you don't have a clue as to what I meant.
