All Blacks Haka against the Springboks in Bloemfontein

All Blacks Haka against the Springboks in Bloemfontein

We've had a few requests for the Haka from the Tri Nations Test between the Springboks and the All Blacks this past weekend in Bloemfontein.

The home side, the Boks, won the match 28-19 in what was yet another tense and entertaining Test match between the two countries.

The look of intensity on the players' faces prematch, during the Haka, told a story in itself as these two sides went at it for the full eighty minutes.

The Springboks looked the better side though, as the All Blacks' error strewn performance will be of slight concern going into the next Test in Durban on Saturday.

Sure, they had a challenging turn around after the long trip from Auckland, but very rarely have a South African side managed to dominate and look as much in control against the All Blacks, as they did this past weekend.

The mistakes of the first half cost the AB's dearly, and the second half is perhaps a sign of things to come, as they find their feet on tour.

The Test at Kingspark on Saturday will be yet another classic between these great rivals of the rugby world. Expect the All Blacks to bounce back, and the Boks to lift their game in order to keep them out.
