    Are You Ready to Die for the All Blacks?

    It is a traditional Maori challenge/welcome. At the end they are supposed to place a spear or war club on the ground. If you accept the challenge you pick it up. Having a Haka performed for you should be regarded as an honour. Unfortunately, like many things these days, it is being misused and misinterpreted.
