    Thought the Aboriginal language as a start to the Anthem was good, along with the challenge/war dance.

    I'd have no problem with both elements being recognised and incorporated to the pre-game formalities.

    It was a bit more aggressive than the usual one, which was good.

    Still uniquely Aboriginal though.

    I have no idea about Aboriginal tribal customs. So if this is how I am educated then so be it! Good stuff NRL.

    Maybe we could raise some money & pass the hat around for braless Jess.
    Or get Victoria's secret to sponsor the game. After each game Jess could throw one into the crowd, just like JT's headgear.

    I thought the Anthem was cool, but not so much with the Haka thing.

    That was pretty full on...who won the match?
    (Interesting to see the Maori side included James Tamou)

    I think Cook Islands v NZ Maori done opposing 'hakas' that resulted in an all-in fight.

    Can't find the video though.

    1. Aboriginal anthem verse: like it, needs to be brought into the anthem fulltime, almost as good as the Maori part of the NZ anthem.

    2. War dance: we should oppose the haka with that, spears and all.
