Australias national rugby team will not take a knee in support of the Black Lives Matter movement after a unanimous vote by the players, insisting they were not interested in making political statements.
The Australian Wallabies face the New Zealand All Blacks next Saturday in a Bledisloe Cup contest in Sydney.
Coach Dave Rennie said the idea of kneeling during the national anthem was discussed by the players and they voted against becoming the first Australian national sporting team to do so.

BOOM! Actual manly response. But I still wouldn’t live there.
Worship your Negros!
Smart move on their part.
Good on ‘em!
If the Kiwis had any guts they would change their name to All Whites.
Good on ya
There is no sizeable population of African blacks in Australia but on the other hand Aboriginal Lives Matter!
Speechless....a sports team with balls and brains...
RE: Unanimous Decision: Australias National Rugby Team Refuses to Kneel for BLM
The “Blacks” in Australia are Aborigines. I don’t think they have their version of Michael Brown or Jacob Blake...
It’s good to see men in sports for a change ... unlike all the American “male” athletes and sportscasters (especially on those “men” on Everything Scares People Nowadays/ESPN) who are clearly still frightened over most everything!
I cant find if the All Blacks are kneeling. That would be disappointing. I loved the ALL Blacks. They were the most bad ass team in sports.
Looked it up, cost of living Down Under is much higher than here.
Plus there’s no Bill of Rights, police can enter & search private homes without warrants, and Covid lockdowns/mask enforcement resembles East Germany.
And every form of wildlife there (except koalas & kookaburras) wants to kill you.
Nevertheless, well done, Wallabies!
Yeah, thats not how the Kiwis role. There are a lot of Polynesians on that squad.
The All Blacks Are a team from New Zealand. This article is about the Wallabies.
Rugby leagues are an acquired taste in S Asia.
BOOM! Actual manly response. But I still wouldnt live there.
Maybe not... but the sheilas were pretty nice as I recall from my younger days. And I love the accent.
No kneeling in a Hakka.
LOL! Actually I’m over the wanna be steve eco irwin accents myself.
Shouldn't that be the New Zealand All African-Americans?
