Default Rugby World Cup - England To Wear Black For A Game ... In NZ

I'd like to see England win the thing but this just smacks of disrespect.

That's the way lads, fire them up for no apparent benefit.

Because, of course, the kiwis show nothing but respect and tact towards England.

It just struck me as a pathetic thing to do in the attempt to sell more shirts ... I am being overruled all over the place including the NZ forum so maybe I read it wrong, just looks like arrogance to me ...

I agree it seems an odd choice and I can't find details anywhere of a reason for changing the away strip to black.

They have used a predominantly black 'away' strip recently, apparently they got permission from the NZ authorities so maybe I have just smoked too much crack and am reading too much into the decision

England are just taking the p1ss out of the hosts

They'll probably dance a 'Morris Dance' as well, in answer to the haka - if they should meet
