World cup rugby union, English rugby has a penalty fee of £ 2,000 (2,300 euros), for the manner in which the players, on Saturday, interacted with the traditional, which is a war dance of their opponents, New Zealand, in the lead-up to the semi-finals of the world cup in Japan.

As with the New Zealanders, with a lot of noise on their end with the usual haka opvoerden, the English team is unexpectedly in a challenging V-shaped formation, with four internationals in the half-way line and elsewhere. The crossing of that line, while the ritual is in accordance with the rules of the international rugby association, the team is prohibited. With two fingers in the air, with the palm of the hand to the face a lot, it is, after all, is the British equivalent of the middle finger.


national Coach Steve Hansen of New Zealand and I didn’t have any problems with the response of the English team. “The haka that requires a response. This is because it is a personal challenge, and the idea is that you are responding to. I have found that the action of the English people is brilliant.”

England won the match 19-7 and will be playing on Saturday in the final of the world cup against South Africa.
