Headlines 10/09/2019

The All Blacks left our shores yesterday to begin their defence of the Rugby World Cup in Japan, but not without a proper goodbye first.

Air New Zealand staff made sure to give our boys the send-off they deserved with a rousing haka on the airport tarmac, with players Aaron Smith, TJ Perenara and Rieko Ioane all in attendance.

The whole performance was beautifully captured and released in a video last night, which has already amassed 215K views and 3.6K shares.
