Ahead of their annual derby clash, King’s College Auckland and Auckland Grammar School faced off for their traditional Haka exchanges pre-match, setting the scene for the 206th 1st XV meeting between the two schools. The pride, passion and tradition on show are something to behold.
While this all takes place before kick-off and it has nothing to do with actual rugby skill, it gives us an insight into the way the sport is viewed in the country, and how important schoolboy rugby, in particular, is to them.
Bucket list: Get to Auckland to watch this annual match in person.
Also, see if you can spot a former Sharks, London Irish and South Africa player at the end.
