Song for the semi-final

I hear we’re struggling to find a song to sing at rugby games.

Ireland has the Fields of Athenry, England (for some reason) has a Negro spiritual, and Australia has the most annoying song written since our own National Anthem. Which should be unsung, but sadly isn’t.

So I don’t have a song for you to sing on every terrace, but there’s certainly a strong candidate for one to be sung at this weekend’s semi-final. An old classic, with only a few words needing an update. I mean, have you Ever Met a Nice South African … ?
