Their Rugby Team is also called The Wallabies- we have no problem beating them up.
Ever since I was a kid, I always wanted to live in New Zealand. The opportunity to move to NZ was actually there when I was 12 but we were moving to the US instead. No regrets of course but the idea of what could have been never left me.

The All Blacks (NZ) scored a massive 78 tries in 2018. Sit back and enjoy every 5-pointer that the men in black scored in the year.

This is the best Haka ever- makes me cry.

2nd 1st Farewell Their Fallen Comrades With A Huge Haka

Haka is used throughout New Zealand by many, not only Māori, to demonstrate their collective thoughts. There is a haka for each of the Services, as well as the Defence Force. Units with the NZ Army have their own haka. This video shows the soldiers of 2/1 RNZIR Battalion performing their Unit haka, powerfully acknowledging the lives and feats of their fallen comrades as they come onto the Unit's parade ground. It is also an emotive farewell for they will leave via the waharoa (the carved entrance way) for the very last time.

I think it is an awesome ritual. The expressions on the faces and the effort that goes into performing Haka with the gestures underline the genuine feelings inside whatever the reason or intention of Haka is at the time.

I saw that NZ beat India this evening and funny enough the first thing I thought of was you! I like to watch cricket here and there and I knew you’d be over the moon! Wow indeed!
