I thought it was good. I didn’t realise it was a brand new one especially written for the ABs. Given the traditional dislike of “Ka mate” in Ngai Tahu country thanks to the originator’s rather unfortunate history of invading, enslaving and eating them, it shows great sensitivity on the ABs behalf not to remind Stephen O Reagan’s iwi of their ancestors lack of martial ability.
I thought the news Haka was crap.
Tama looked horrible especially when he hit that guy on the shoulder and the cutting of the throat was awful.
I actually think they shouldnt do the haka at all as it makes New Zealand look like a Banana Republic
Don’t really have an opinion either way – but was actually nice to see the AB’s not doing a haka on half-arse autopilot. Obviously a lot of practice went into it – now if only they could get a little consistency into the actual football.
I thought it was great, the Kamate haka has become boring because everyone does it now – the softball team, the hockey team the olympic swimming team, the rsa darts team – please, just leave it to the ABs, if they are the only ones doing it, it won’t get boring.
Starts of a lot like the Wellington College haka. The going to ground and up until the come back up is STOLEN from Wellington College.
It was well done, and showed that Maori do have a part to play in New Zealand, no matter what Dr. Brash says.
Don Brash has said that maoris do have a part to play in New Zealand. However as individuals not because they happen to Maori. Kiri Te Kanawa, Micheal Campbel and other Maori got to where they are because of their own individual efforts not because they happened to be Maori. Greg politically correct people such as yourself have actually damaged the aspirations of Maori.
“….showed that Maori do have a part to play in New Zealand, no matter what Dr. Brash says”
Riiiiiiiight, remind us again when it was exactly that Dr Brash said that Maori have no part to play in NZ, or even words remotely to that effect.
I must have been the same speech that he said he was personally going to eat the first born child of every couple in the South Pacific….
My old dad always said “girl,if you do a thing,do it right”.(or was that Johnny Cash?)so I assert that the ABs should have done that thing BUCK-ARSED NAKED or not at all.As a good mummy though,I would have covered my daughter’s eyes.

While assessing who would be a fit father of your grandchildren? Can’t remember who said sons-in-law should be treated like ponies – pick a clean, healthy specimen and shoot it when it gets shirty – but it’s never too soon to start planning.
Craig, you are correct. When I made the terrible mistake of inviting my first love interest to pick me up from home for a date,the poor bloke was met by my father cleaning his gun(I should say hunting rifle but it could well have been an AK 47 given Dad’s attitude).The poor little bastard could not get me home soon enough,despite my uncontested allure in those days.Nature/nurture ha ha….Half of me now thinks “sexuality/maturity = good.The other half says “if I even suspect that you want to put your sweaty hands on my child,I will throttle the life out of you”.There is nothing new here,but Jeez,I’d still love to see the ABs naked.Should I increase my medication?
