Laws about the haka?

Are there any actual laws about how a team must respond to the Haka or about how is must be performed??

Also how long is the Haka?

  • The team receiving the challenge, if they are on the pitch, must stay on their half; they can't step on the other team's half of the playing surface. Typically it's around 90 seconds not counting the TV people yammering on and on about it.

    Not sure, to me though its a traditional Maori thing and it just looks weird, fake and even a bit comical seeing European descended-Kiwis doing it, it isn't part of their heritage and its hard to take them seriously.
