Has the haka had its day?

Ireland prop Cian Healy got slammed recently when he said he hated the haka and wondered why the All Blacks were allowed to perform it before tests. 

Wellingtonian editor and long-time sports writer Joseph Romanos agreed. He said the haka was so ridiculously over-done these days that its currency had been devalued.

We want to hear your views on the All Black haka.

Has it been devalued? Is it fair that the All Blacks have this extra moment? And what about the fact that we now have two? Or that any backpacker in London with a few pints in him can bust one out on the tube?

In more than 200 words, tell us what the haka means to you, and to New Zealand.

Do we still need it?
