Post NZ Maori team to face Lions
Not as strong as most Super teams but pretty close
They probably won't do a haka, so we shouldn't have to worry for those that don't like it, so all good

Maori perform traditional Haka challenge.
Pakeha give traditional response.
First rank Fire! Second rank Fire! Third rank.....

That didn't turn out that well here either, might have worked in Aussie, ironically slaughtering the locals, but the Maori seemed to give as good as they got, minus the muskets.

Yep but that's what the Lions might need..... :D

I thought it turned out well for the Pakeha but not well for the Maori.
However I think you're right about the Lions needing muskets (at least).

Na eog, it was a long slog, and a treaty was written not great for Maori, but a treaty was needed, unlike some other indigenous countries like Aussie, America where they just came in and slaughtered. The Maori wars are not even known that well here. There are some good. But the battled well.

Yes, if there is no Haka I will be outraged. Skip the national anthem and do it twice.

Can't wait to watch Leinster's signing for next season James Lowe, he looks a cracking player from what i've seen for the Chiefs , hope he has a blinder against the Lions. :thumbup:

At 24 he could be an Irish player too....
He is unlucky not to have been an AB.

Team looks a bit better now I've had a good look, I hope Ngatai and Proctor start in the centers
Does May play tight or loose head?

Weakness at 10?

Go the Maori

I heard Tawera Kerr Barlow has been released to play, he is prob best kiwi to face Murray, he is competitive as with a bit of an edge.
