Pita should drink a cup of concrete

England is going full court on panty-waist sledged like their Hakarena video. It was gay, and lame…like their Rugby team but it hasn’t stopped some getting their own panties in a bunch.

I mean Matt Dawson was supposed to be intimidating but he just came across as a pansy.

Sir Pita Sharples has described as “insulting” an attempt by a British menswear chain to create its own haka ahead of the Rugby World Cup

In a video fronted by former England captain Matt Dawson, a group of rugby players clad in English colours perform a dance called ‘The Hakarena’, fusing the actions of Ka Mate with those from popular 1994 dance song Macarena. ?

But Sir Pita, former co-leader of the Maori Party, said the video was both disrespectful to Maori culture and missing the point of the All Blacks’ pre-match war cry.

“The haka is done as a way of honouring the enemy,” he said. “You don’t do it in those sorts of circumstances — you do it if you’re up for a challenge.

“By doing a haka as the All Blacks do, it’s recognising the worth of the other side. So if they’re doing something to mock the haka, then I think that’s pretty shameful.”

It was clearly designed to get under our skin, so why even let them have the win by being upset about it? ?

Of course they?re going to mock us and try and play with our heads. ??The right response would have been for the AB?s to do a little Morris dance, right?

One thing for sure is Matt Dawson will get gang tackled hard when he steps out on the field against the All Blacks.
