EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph captures a pivotal moment in the rich history of rugby union between New Zealand and Wales. The image, taken on December 16, 1905, at Cardiff, shows the New Zealand rugby team performing the Haka, their traditional Maori war dance, before the highly anticipated match against Wales. The All Blacks, as they came to be known, were on a world tour at the time, having already defeated England and other European teams. The Haka, an ancient Maori dance, was performed as a display of strength, courage, and respect before battle. It was a powerful and intimidating ritual that was believed to give the team spiritual and physical advantage. The Welsh team, however, was undeterred by the spectacle and went on to secure a historic victory against the All Blacks, marking the first time a British team had defeated the New Zealanders in their own game. Despite the loss, the Haka remains an integral part of New Zealand rugby culture and is now performed as a symbol of respect and unity before international matches. This photograph is a testament to the rich cultural heritage and the fierce spirit of competition that has come to define rugby union between New Zealand and Wales.
