Rugby isn’t for sissies. And in New Zealand, it’s more than a game; it’s a passion. And the New Zealand National Rugby Union team is a mighty and ferocious team indeed, world-known by their more common name, “All Blacks” are also well known for their team performance of a “haka” before every match. A haka is a Māori dance – actually a “challenge” or “posture dance” – and can be quite intimidating to watch!
There are different versions; they don’t always perform the exact same one at every match. Here is a renowned YouTube video of one of the team’s performance, and you’ll see what I mean about it being intimidating. Enjoy!
