The New Zealand national men’s rugby team, nicknamed the All Blacks, had just made history, becoming the first New Zealand team to win the cup on foreign soil, and were heading home.

The All Blacks are known for performing a haka, which is a traditional Maori challenge, before matches and frequently perform their famous haka, Ka Mate.

The team arrived to rain and airport staff on the tarmac showing off their support, and found 4,000 excited fans waiting for them inside the airport.
