Professor Milroy comments on women performing the haka before a playing rugby. On television, he saw women rugby players performing the haka and criticies this.
However, he is reminded that Sir Kingi Ihaka said that there are more important matters happening in the world!! Te Wharehuia says it would be better for the haka to be dropped. Mentions Buck Shelford's ihi. He continues by saying that there is a place for everything. "Te Ao Pakeha has taken us over!" Do the Haka on appropiate occasions, he says. Men have their duties and women theirs. He concludes by saying the women were only following the All Blacks.
