The Maori All Blacks didn’t disappoint.
Rugby fans flocked to BC Place on Friday, with 29,480 fans filling the lower bowl to see Canada face the visitors from New Zealand. It was the largest crowd to ever see a 15s rugby match in Canadian history.
The Maori All Blacks dominated as expected, winning by a 51-9 score.
But the real show was before the match, as the Maori All Blacks performed the world famous Haka – a traditional war dance in Maori culture – to the delight of the crowd.
