New Zealand Maori vs New Zealand Barbarians thriller

New Zealand Maori vs New Zealand Barbarians thriller

New Zealand Maori played against a New Zealand Barbarians side this weekend ahead of their upcoming internationals. It was an open game with plenty of running and an exciting finish so if you dont know the result yet, skip to the video now to avoid the spoiler.

The Maori side were wearing a specially designed centenary celebration jersey that encompasses their history and culture and started the game with a rousing rendition of their haka.

The Barbarians side comprised of up-and-coming fringe New Zealand players, as well as touring Ireland squad member Damien Varley.

While the match was scrappy at times, with little intensity up front, the running rugby was at times breathtaking, right up till the last minute when winger Hosea Gear crossed for what was the match winning try. It ended 37-31 to the New Zealand Maori.

Keep a lookout for two classic tries in particular from Colin Slade and then the great team effort that was eventually finished by Hayden Triggs.

Luke McAlister kicked three conversions and a penalty for the Maori, showing good form leading up to their games against Ireland on June 18th, and England on June 23rd.
