On Sunday, 18 September, the South Africa Rugby Team was hosted by Ngati Tuwharetoa and Ngati Hikairo at Opotaka. This is the site where the Ka Mate haka was first performed by the warrior chief, Te Rauparaha, as he fled his pursuers. This will be the first time that Ngati Tuwharetoa and Ngati Hikairo will share their version of the story.

Opotaka is on the shores of Lake Rotoaira, 12 kilometres from Turangi.
