Why is it that there should be silence for kicks? I keep quiet with the best of them during kicks just wondered why?

I bet you yesterday at Twickenham the was no quiet for kicks and I'm sure today for the Scotland France game there also will not be silence. People who are coming for the day will see those games at home and therefore not expect silence for a kick. confused smiley

Andy. I was at the World Cup in NZ and the noise when kicks were being taken were deafening ( including the Scotland v England match ).

I discussed this with rugby fans who were there from all over the World. Opinions on why we insist on silence here ranged from " Bloody stupid " to " quaint British tradition."

I would like someone to take a poll of the kickers and find out wahat they think. I bet a lot of noise would inspire some of them.
