Really looking forward to the Rugby match versus the All Blacks on Saturday. We're going to deck them. Just to educate myself I found out what the Haka actually means in English today. Now that I know it's a load of nonsense it's hard to take it seriously! But apparently there is a proper explanation and history to it.

I'm going to watch the match with a bunch of Kiwis which will make victory oh so sweet. It's the Alpha weekend away down in Eastbourne and three of the people in the group come from New Zealand. In fact there are loads of them in church. Anyway, we're going to do Eastbourne and check out all the old people. I've been warned that because most people down there are over 75 they whack the heating in the hotel on full blast! Had better start packing a few t-shirts...

England, rugby, haka, All Blacks
