YES, MOST OF us agree the haka is one of the most stunning spectacles in sport.

The haka is an ancient ritual that should be respected by opponents of course… but how can Ireland respond to this incredible challenge?
1. Do the Poznan

4. Do the Nidgey
5. Make an entrance like the Viper
BOD is Black Mamba, New Zealand are Buzz obviously.
6. Do the Willie Anderson like it’s 1989
Ireland still lost, mind…
Any other suggestions?
