The Haka

A super-sized ball has been erected in Cardiff Castle to mark the start of a month for international sport in the Welsh capital: The Rugby World Cup 2015.  The ball seems to have been embedded in the wall.

And what is the relationship between New Zealand and rugby? Well, the Haka. The Haka is a ritual dance of the Maori, the native people of New Zealand. Sometimes, a haka is performed to excite friends and to scare enemies. A famous haka is ‘Kapo O Pango’ which is performed by New Zealand’s rugby union team called “All Blacks” before the match starts.

Watch the following video and you’ll see the rugby team “All Blacks” performing the Haka and challenging the French. Really interesting.
