Day 6, Bonus Activity

As part of the Matariki festival, there is a two day Kapa Haka competition. The haka is a traditional war dance that Maori performed before going into battle. The haka is now performed by children/adults in the community and by professional sporting teams, including our national rugby team, the ‘All Blacks.’  The All Blacks have performed various haka over the years. Watch the following three haka videos (1 – 3) and, on your blog, list the haka videos in order from best (#1) to worst (#3). There are no right or wrong answers ☺
#1. World Cup 2015 – All Blacks vs Argentina result 26-16 (RWC 2015 Match)
#2. All Blacks vs South Africa 2016 ( 41-13) ABS Win
#3. Rugby World Cup 2011- All Blacks vs France (RWC 2011 8-7) ABs win! Piri

I think I have mentioned before that my family is RUGBY MAD!  So I felt it only right to invite my family to watch and rate the 3 haka performances.  We all agreed that every haka is special, amazing and powerful, but some haka were that much more special because they helped to set the tone for the All Blacks and go them hyped up.   
1st Place
