I had always thought Maori were Polynesian. And I always thought the word "Warriors" and Polynesian (and Melanesian ) was synonymous. It is obvious to me 'Warriors" cites the great Polynesian tradition. Am I wrong? The majority of the Warriors is Polynesian. And so too the impact players on the Blues - not to mention the Blues coach or even the All Blacks itself, or the essential linesmen in the NFL (the majority of the Fale group, most Tongan).. The 'Haka", what culture is that based upon? The Fale group is Polynesian. Come to your own conclusions unless you think a Polynesian ownership group would be a detriment to NRL play and impede the ability of the ownership to communicate to the players? Methinks it would inspire the Warriors. With Fale, the Warriors become the first Polynesian sports group in majority from top to bottom in the world, though so many teams now around the world are dependent upon the Polynesian athlete. Would the NRL welcome that? Would South Auckland? Would the players? Who wouldnt welcome that as it is a major change in the scheme of things or habit over the years.
