Last-minute practice ahead of ‘Blood Match’


HAKA TIME: Waitaki Boys’ High School pupils practise the school haka ahead of the “Blood Match” with St Kevin’s tomorrow.

The haka will be a big feature of the day, with both schools using it to help motivate their side and get them over the line.

The two schools, along with Waitaki Girls’ High, are taking part in an annual interschool today, with many sporting events and other activities happening between the two sides.

Waitaki Boys’ will be out for revenge after St Kevin’s claimed the win in last year’s “Blood Match”. The match kicks off at 1.30pm.
