There will be a haka, there always is. Although I personally feel that allowing any sports team to perform a sinister war dance before a sporting fixture is totally unjustifiable.

I hope they do a Haka for TRH. One the more impressive ones I ever saw was when the New Zealand Paralympic Rugby Team played Canada's Team in a Friendly that was shown on one of the Sports Networks up here. To see those guys doing it literally sent the chills flying down my spine. :)

Definitely a Haka - kick-off is 17:15 UK time

Richard Palmer Answering Basic Questions About The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge-
Richard Palmer‏@RoyalReporter:
As you know, the royals make it up as they go along but aides say Will and Kate won't attend state dinners while part-time.

Richard Palmer‏@RoyalReporter:
So my best guess would be they'll attend state dinners, ceremonial welcomes etc when William is doing royal duties fulltime.

On Foreign Tours for 2013:
Richard Palmer‏@RoyalReporter:
I think they'll do at least one foreign tour in 2013, unless Kate is pregnant.

Richard Palmer‏@RoyalReporter:
As before, they make it up as they go along but generally don't do overseas tours in August. UK spring and autumn are usual.

I think Royal Reporter (#385) is being less than accurate when he says "the royals make it up as they go along". That's journalese for "they don't tell us everything"

Exactly. The BRF are a well oiled organization.

Also, William likes to keep his cards close to the vest

Well, I have heard in some royal documentaries that "the royals make it up as they go along" don't know if it's true but that's not the first time I have heard royal reporters and royal historians say that.

The chances of Wales beating NZ are nil. They haven't done so for over 50 years. Wales will do well to get on the scoreboard at all - it's currently Wales 0-33 NZ with over 30 minutes of play still left.

If you want to watch an enjoyable rugby match, best to watch any game other than those in which NZ are playing.
