South African university rugby team slammed for All Blacks haka rendition
A South African university rugby side have been slammed on social media after performing a haka before their opening match of the Varsity Shield.
Walter Sisulu University, nicknamed the All Blacks, performed their rendition of the All Blacks haka Kapa O Pango against the Rhinos, with the video since going viral online.
But fans were not impressed.
"As a Kiwi this is really in poor taste. The Haka belongs to the Māori people. Very disrespectful by this team to think it's okay to use it for themselves," one fan wrote on Facebook.
