Wales face down the All Blacks' 2008 Haka
... a very rough translation!
It is death - It is death It is life - It is life It is death - It is death It is life - It is life This is the hairy man Who caused the sun to shine again for me Up the ladder - Up the ladder Up to the top The sun shines!

God of nations! At Thy feet In the bonds of love we meet, Hear our voices, we entreat, God defend our free land. Guard Pacific's triple star, From the shafts of strife and war, Make her praises heard afar, God defend New Zealand
Men of every creed and race Gather here before Thy face, Asking Thee to bless this place, God defend our free land. From dissension, envy, hate, And corruption guard our state, Make our country good and great, God defend New Zealand
Peace, not war, shall be our boast, But, should foes assail our coast, Make us then a mighty host, God defend our free land. Lord of battles in thy might, Put our enemies to flight, Let our cause be just and right, God defend New Zealand
Let our love for Thee increase, May Thy blessings never cease, Give us plenty, give us peace, God defend our free land. From dishonour and from shame Guard our country's spotless name Crown her with immortal fame, God defend New Zealand
May our mountains ever be Freedom's ramparts on the sea, Make us faithful unto Thee, God defend our free land. Guide her in the nations' van, Preaching love and truth to man, Working out Thy glorious plan,
God defend New Zealand
