    Im sure everyone has seen the rugby 2005 video with the Haka at the start.
    Richie McCaw leads the Haka but what if you were to replace him before the start of the match?

    Would someone else take over as the leader and who

    also

    is the Haka part of the pre-match hype

    Yes we know its on footage..........but that could be the the intro movie just to get the hype going.

    ie b4 a match will we see the following in this order
    1. players running out of tunnel
    2. player line-up
    3. teams in line singing anthem
    4. when NZ playing, Haka begins
    5. kickoff

    if the haka is for real and b4 every all black match, i will have to play my first match against the NZeders

    Well in the video they finish the Haka as well so it must be the whole Haka

    Ka mate - Ka mate
    Ka ora - Ka ora
    Ka mate - Ka mate
    Ka ora - Ka ora
    Tenei Te Tangata Puhuruhuru
    Nana i tiki mai whakawhiti te ra
    Upane - Upane
    Upane Kaupane
    Whiti te ra

    a very rough translation!

    It is death - It is death
    It is life - It is life
    It is death - It is death
    It is life - It is life
    This is the hairy man
    Who caused the sun to shine again for me
    Up the ladder - Up the ladder
    Up to the top
    The sun shines!

    BRING IT ON!!!!!

    I always thought it was unusual for the NZ haka to be about a guy who escaped getting killed by his enemies. You would have thought they would have chosen something different. Rather than stand his ground and fight to the death against innumerable odds the lone Maori chief jumps ionto a pit and hides away. When he is undiscovered he climbs out and celebrates being alive.

    Doesn't seem to match up with the Spirit of the AB's.
