Friday sports offtopic. Respect, gentlemen!

The All Blacks’ two encounters with Ireland may’ve been very tough and fierce, and they weren’t devoid of controversy (especially the first one in Chicago where Ireland inflicted the first AB defeat in ages)… but that didn’t prevent a few of the NZ players from showing tremendous respect for their opponents. An Irish fan caught Beauden Barrett, Aaron Smith, Kieran Reid and Israel Dagg belching out Ireland’s Call, which is the unofficial rugby anthem of the united Irish team. The fact that a few of them have Irish descent also helped get the song right. This is yet another example of the great culture and spirit of rugby. It’s known to be a rough game for gentlemen (whereas football is an elegant game for scoundrels LOL). Relevant vid:
