The International Rugby Board have agreed and have ruled that a 
haiku, not a haka
must be performed by the All Blacks at the final of the Rugby World Cup.

Your challenge is to write a haiku 
that the All Blacks can use instead of the haka.

What is a Haiku?

  • Haiku poems consist of 3 lines. 
  • The first has 5 syllables, the middle line has 7 syllables and last lines of a Haiku have 5 syllables.
  • The lines do not have to rhyme.

Example 1    

haiku or haka
doesn't matter on game day
still world's number 1

Example 2
All Blacks are the best
Australians are way NOT
poor English, but oh so true!

Example 3
collisions and pain
we're so tough we do not care
victory is ours!


  1. Haiku 1 :
    Thriving With Success
    As We Are Victorious
    We Are Number One

    Haiku 2 :
    Tactics Are Well Needed
    Tackle, Score and convert
    Will Lead Us To Victory

    We are the All Blacks.
    You should be afraid of us.
    We are the greatest.

    We will win this war.
    We will never let you down!

    Will we live or die?
    For our country, anything!
    We will live and die.

    Skills, strength, don’t matter.
    Teamwork is what we are
    Believe! We will win!

    One step upward, ae (yes in Maori)
    One step upward to the sun.
    Yes! And the sun shines!

    One step upward, ae (yes in Maori)
    One step up to victory.
    Yes, our victory!
