"Don'tcha get sick of the Kiwis doin' their stupid haka?" "Sure do!.. Wouldn't be so bad if they just did it when they win!" "Go easy, Blue!.. There should be some time when they can do it!" 22 March, 2006.

Reference Number: DCDL-0001125

The scene is a pub in Melbourne where the Commonwealth Games are currently taking place. Three Aussie men in black singlets and surrounded by flies lean on the counter with their beers while a blond barmaid looks on. One of the men complains that he is sick of the New Zealanders doing the haka all the time, a second man opines that they should reserve it for wins and the third man reckons that the Kiwis should get a break because they should be allowed to do the haka sometimes. The reference is to the fact that the Kiwis have not won as many medals as expected and also that there has been a criticism that the haka may be being overused.
