Dont know if anyone has shared this but I think its pretty good. Primary school do the Haka for the NZ lads, then the NZ team get up and do it back :)

It's a brilliant video, it's been popping up on my facebook and twitter feed throughout the day.

I think it is brilliant as well.  It must have been quite a frightening  / awe inspiring sight for the kids though when the Kiwi's stood up and responded with their Haka.

I experienced it from less than 10ft away... One of the most awesome things I've ever witnessed (if you watch closely, you'll see a photographer in a green and blue top cross the screen a few times... thats me :D)

The way Doncaster people and kids has embraced the Kiwis and Cook Islands and the facilities offered shows what a mistake the RL have made in not bringing a match or team base to Doncaster

The impromptu 'singsong' led by the Cook Islands players on Monday was outstanding as well.

That was marvellous actually got goosebumps watching it..


Rugby Union the only game in the world were the spectators handle the ball more than the players.

Shot from another angle, and slightly better picture quality.

As said above, it was Norton Primary School. Its a fantastic effort from them to say that they learnt it in break times and lunch periods.

Slightly or dramatically?

 

Either way, it's brilliant all round.  I'm not a fan of the Haka, and I'd like to see England completely ignore it, but it certainly helps kids engage with the Kiwis.

Sharper image when the camera is still, but it does wobble around a bit.
