Haka fine makes World Rugby look silly
I'm sure the RFU can afford it but I honestly haven't seen a single comment, whether from New Zealanders or otherwise, where anyone had a problem with the England team's actions.
Other than World Rugby, of course, who continue impose ludicrous, artificial protocols on how the Maori challenge ought to be received.
Contrary to popular belief I have no issue whatsoever with the All Blacks performing their haka - it is often great theatre (last Saturday being a case in point).
But for World Rugby to continue to legislate on how the opposition should behave during this choreographed showpiece is just silly.
