Video: Aussies and Kiwis demonstrate the correct way to prepare for a match
Rugger overshadowed by bizarre rituals
When it comes to entertaining empty stadiums, our antipodean friends are world leaders. Before New Zealand faced Australia in the ongoing Rugby League World Cup in Sydney, the Kiwi Haka was pitted against a traditional Aboriginal war dance, which essentially consisted of a man in a thong shouting things.
After the impressive display, the commentator says “That was better than Billy Idol!”, obviously mistaking Billy Idol for something good.
(In the unlikely case that you deem it important, Australia won the match 30-6.)
