The Welsh Haka

The buzz around the Autumn Internationals has really been building this week.  Can Martin Johnson's cobbled together experimental England side overturn the Aussies at Twickenham?  Sadly I doubt it, and I think that even a reinvigorated Wilkinson will struggle to engineer a victory over the Southern Hemisphere opposition.

Still, I will gladly be proven wrong.  I'd say Australia will win by 6-10 points.

Over in the Wales camp, Mystic Warren Gatland has been hyping up the media single-handedly with his joss-stick waving beliefs that New Zealand have lost their aura, and that without Carter and McCaw in the team they are quite "vulnerable".

Dan Carter looks petrified at the threat of Wales

OK Warren, well we'll see about that.  New Zealand to win by at least 15 points.

The thing I'm really keeping my fingers crossed for this weekend is a repeat of the Wales vs New Zealand staring competition that we saw when these two sides last faced off.  If you haven't see it before, check out the video below:


Hopefully Wales will raise their game this time by throwing a little Welsh dancing into the mix when they front up to the infamous New Zealand Haka.

Shane Williams was always first on the dancefloor

I can see it now:  Ryan Jones twirling Leigh Halfpenny around and Stephen Jones doing a solo jig. 

That will definitely strike fear into the hearts of the All Blacks.
