My neighbor is from NZ and his favorite sports team is the "All Blacks"
team of NZ. He says it is the native Maori on the team that make them such winners. Also, we had an article on FR some time back about the Maori having an 'aggression gene' lacking in other people. They were notorious in the past for killing and eating their enemies.

One of the places we stayed in NZ was a farmstay run by a lovely couple named Ra and Leon. Ra was of Maori ancestry, Leon of English ancestry. Leon said that when he and Ra were dating, she would make jokes about her ancestors eating his ancestors.
