Fuss about nothing

Proving that I am clairvoyant, we already have our first Haka controversy of this RWC.
No doubt you've seen the video doing the rounds showing former England scrum half Matt Dawson, together with members of the Battersea Ironsides Rugby Club, performing the "Hakarena" to promote a certain clothing company.

Predictably enough there has been reaction in New Zealand, with Sir Pita Sharples, former co-leader of the Maori Party, describing Dawson's effort as "pretty shameful" and "insulting."
Less predictably however (and, in truth, quite refreshingly), All Black hooker Keven Mealamu has described the video as "quite funny."
Spot on Kev - not original, far from hilarious, just quite funny - mildly, very mildly, amusing.
