Hi all, I’m in a protracted debate with my kiwi father (I was born in Scotland, and we’re both Pakeha) about whether England crossing the half way line during the haka was “disrespectful”. To let you know where I stand, I think what England did was breaking a minor rule that was brought in by world rugby following the ‘07 nearly brawl against France. Was it a bit of a 2 fingers af world rugby? Probably. Was it “disrespectful” to the haka itself? No in my view. What is the view of the Maori and wider NZ community on this?
