Abstract

The paper examines the nature of the bond between rugby and New Zealand’s Maori. Starting from a general overview on the birth of modern team sports as ideological tools of imperialism, the essay focuses on the case of New Zealand where Maoris, minority ethnic group, managed, not without contradictions, to appropriate a foreign tool until overturning the balance of power in the British-led rugby universe.
