There was displeasure at how fans reacted to the haka ahead of the clash against the Springboks in Yokohama.
The 75000 strong crowd began singing Ole' Ole' Ole' when the New Zealanders started Kapa O Pango.
This was met with disapproval from those who see the haka as something scared.

They’re not being forced. All they’re doing is standing and taking it on while the haka call the ancestors. Them standing there is them respecting it.
