All Blacks Haka

Haka is a ‘maori’ word that means dance. […] The New Zeland All Blacks rugby team, play the haka in front of its challenger team, before every match. The team leader screams to the other player the first part. Words must be screamed ‘angrily’, to give the players strenght and determination. Other important elements of the haka are: pukana (eyes wide opened), whetero (tongue sticking out), ngangahu (similar to pukana).”

Kia rite, ka rite tonu!
