Air New Zealand staff perform the famous Maori Haka dance to welcome back the All Blacks after their participation in the Rugby World cup
There were more haka war dances from students and a formal Maori welcome at Auckland’s Victoria Park, where McCaw received the loudest cheer and was given the freedom of the city by mayor Len Brown.
“The support’s been amazing, so to bring this back is pretty awesome,” McCaw said.
“It’s not too bad is it?” chimed in coach Steve Hansen, gesturing towards the trophy. “We’re getting pretty used to having it around too.”
New Zealand’s 34-17 victory over Australia in the final at Twickenham on Saturday made them the first team to win back-to-back World Cups.
It also gave the All Blacks a record three titles and was marked the first time they have won the trophy away from home.
