Is it time to stop the Haka being performed before games? It gives a clear psychological advantage and opposition teams are banned from reacting in any way. The whole event seems protected by political correctness now to the extent that you cannot even question it.

By all means keep it as a part of the country's heritage but leave it off of the rugby field.

I never realised that opposition teams weren't allowed to react to the haka,..that reaction that Campese gave the All Blacks several years ago,was that the cause of " opposition reaction" being banned.??......must say I enjoy the ABs haka,not so much from the " minnows"
