Peckham Manor School rugby

Roger Burrell was the rugby coach during the early 1960s. If I remember correctly, during my second year at the school the rugby squad colours were all black and all the competing teams did the Haka before the game.

I was in the “All Blacks” at Peckham Manor School. We had to shout out Tacaty Ticaty Hobuldy Gobldee or something then jump in the air. It was all at the behest of a New Zealand teacher who tape recorded (very high tech.) one of our assemblies before he returned. [Our New Zealand magazine compiler advises us that the words were more likely part of the Kamate Haka: – Ka mate! Ka mate! Ka ora! Ka ora! Which translate as – I die! I die! I live! I live!]
