Kua whakaingoatia te Kapa Ōpango Māori

He rangi nui tēnei mā Tim Bateman, tuatahi i tohua ia ki te kapa Māori, tuarua koia te kāpene hōu.  E rua ngā haerenga a Tim e whakapeto ngoi ana i roto i te kapa Māori nei, ā, hei tāna kahore he kapa i tua atu i tēnei, hei mau i te poraka mana nui nei.

Tekau mā toru ngā kaitākaro hōu, tokorima o rātou he kaitākaro Ōpango ō-mua pērā i a Piri Weepu me Zac Guildford, ka mutu tekau mā tahi o te kapa i whai wāhi atu ki te kapa haere i tērā tau.

Koinei te haerenga tuatahi i te hōtaka ā-ao e rima tau te roa mō te kapa Māori, ā, ka tākaro ki a Kānata hei te tuatoru o tērā marama, kātahi ka tuki atu ki te kapa Eagles o Amerika hei te tekau o Whiringa a Rangi.

Hei te Rātapu whakakotahi ai ngā rangatira whutupōro nei kia rite ai mō te atamira whutupōro o te ao.
