When the New Zealand All Blacks line up against Australia’s Wallabies today, they’ll strike fear in the heart of their opponents with the haka. They’ll contort their faces and slap their thighs with such finesse that the Aussies will no doubt tremble.
But it seems times have changed, because back in the ’70s all the Kiwis had were a bunch of weedy white guys.
Lads, that’s not how you do a haka. This kind of display isn’t scaring anyone. It’s also likely angering the Maoris in the stands who know they could do it a million times better.
This, dear readers, is what we call a haka fail.
