HAKA- (rugby)

If any of you watch rugby you’ve seen the HAKA done by the New Zealand “All Blacks”. Masoli is a Samoan & their team also does version of the Haka. Imagine the Ti-Cats in their all black uniforms performing this intimidating ceremony. Google HAKA & see what it is all about.

For those of you who haven’t seen a HAKA here is a link to one

I witnessed a demonstration of it at a Maori village in New Zealand. The aboriginals take the performing of it very seriously. Unbelievable to see it close up in full Maori dress. The All Blacks have done it for years with full respect for its heritage.

It seems to now have become a novelty elsewhere.

If we did that after a TD we would automatically get a penalty applied to the kickoff. ;D

We’ll just have to settle for Filer and Tasker doing that dance in the endzone that they did last year. :slight_smile:

The HAKA is only done before the game & needn’t include the whole team.
