Standing up to the Haka

Interesting that Robbie Paul says it's very emotional and actually quite draining to do. He was responding to people who always ask the question "why should we stand there etc." He implied its quite the opposite.

 

By the end of his international career Robbie Paul couldn't burst his way out of a paper bag, it's no surprise to me that he found it draining.

Years ago we would have parked our bikes, rushed onto the field eating fish and chips, had the game of our lives and won in the last few seconds. If only Alf Tupper played rugby!

 

PS  Am in USA and struggling to find coverage if anybody has ideas please post.

Just to cap off the discussion about the Haka's intent as an honor thing.

The Kiwis performed the Haka for Sonny Bill Williams when he won international player of the year.....really it is just NZ's version of the 21 gun Salute....while your alive of course....without any actual guns.....never mind.
