    Watched the video...players did not react one way or another no need to toss them under the bus...I mean, what were they supposed to do?

    I guess look horrified, shocked, offended! And run to get it stopped immediately! They did nothing! (I suspect some might not know the difference between the two songs, being professional rugby players and maybe not very musically inclined or politically engaged? ...)

    Start singing the March of the Volunteers proud and loud to drown out the wrong anthem.

    The approved response has been stated

    “You should make a T sign, [say] ‘Stop! Stop! Suspend! Wrong song! Wrong national anthem! This is inappropriate!’,” InMedia cited the legislator as saying.

    If he and his comrades stopped their posturing, the international press would have probably not picked up the story. Instead, it is now an ongoing discussion and again making both the city and country look bad because of the childish overreaction.

    ;_; more junius ho.. multiplied overnight.. how come.

    These 3 bozos should all be fucking dismissed from their public roles immediately. Say patriotic but there is nothing patriotic abt this self-serving drama. Flinging dirt at the rugby team to show just how outraged they really are therefore totally patriotic and on the ball. Poor rugby team, they must be like ..wtf..
