Australia have reportedly changed their unform and made slected a new anthem for the tests this year. Robbie Deans said he "was pleased with the result, most of the team felt the changes reflected the culture of the squad". New cap Mike Harris said that he'd "been dreaming of wearing the uniform since I was a child. I was worried it wouldn't come true. I know this is true for a lot of the current squad". Quade Cooper said that "most of the boys know the anthem off by heart, and were secretly singing it last year". The ARFU has posted a clip to highlight the new strip and help Australian fans learn the anthem: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhCgcZ0efAA

Aparently Mike Catt stated that "there was a potential clash with England. However, England's team management had decided to take the team in a new direction". The new strip can be seen at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hI9Ng2vHpkM

Given that I can't go 2 minutes without seeing a silver fern on the back of someone's car I'd say it's only fair we get something out of all the kiwi's living here. boxing

The NZRFU thought about it. But realised that the national anthem of the first two was in fact https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhCgcZ0efAA. The last anthem turned out to be https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p0cQBRC78rg&feature=related which as we know has been rewritten as https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhCgcZ0efAA. So they decided to stick with the status quo.

“New Zealand, originally part of the colony of New South Wales…”

“THE number of New Zealanders packing their bags and heading to Australia accelerated in April - with a new record number of annual departures at 53,462.”

Laugh

After having the misfortune of visiting Canberra for work a few years back (I love that the Aussies found a hellhole in the middle of nowhere and forced their politicians to live there) I noted that Canberra has 8 major suburbs, arrayed in a ring around the centre.

7 of the suburbs are named after types of tree, and the highway out to each is named after a state capitol, So you have Sydney Ave, Melbourne Ave, etc. The 8th suburb is called "Manuka", and Wellington Ave leads out to it. Hence the establishment of a 5th column, expanding out of Bondi, against the day when the Aussies decide to enforce their claim Whistle
