About this scrapbook page:
NZ is a Rugby mad nation. It would have to be our main Winter sport. The 'Haka' is performed before every international match played by the 'All Blacks' our national team. The Haka originated with the Maori & there are many variations the most well known being the war dance. The All Blacks perform one that is called the 'Ka Mate' If you get a chance check it out on U Tube. It is quite fascinating.
Design credits:
The guy in the centre holding the cup is The All Black Captain Ritchie McCaw. He would have to be the best no 7 in the world & for the 2nd time won International Rugby player of the year. Nobody has ever won it twice before. Created in Photoscape. Each pic has been turned into a pencil sketch or watercolour. The background is a frond of the silver fern blended with a maori haka painting
