One Kiwi rugby team performed a Haka… in Kildare… in a SuperMac’s

by

With the Rugby World Cup in full swing across the water, we're being treated to a load of rather impressive Haka right now. 

What a pity though we missed one on our very doorstep – for a visiting New Zealand schools team delighted Co Kildare locals earlier this week with their impressive display.

Better still… the traditional war-cry took place in a service station branch of Supermac's.

Students from the Wairoa College Rugby Academy have certainly been making the most of the Irish leg of their European tour.

Indeed, their busy Facebook page has plenty of snaps of Dublin city centre (they, of course, made sure to visit the Aviva Stadium), as well as Roscrea College in Co Offaly and Dromore High School in Co Down. 

On Monday, the teenagers stopped in SuperMac's in Mayfield just off the M7 in Kildare – and when staff there asked them to perform a Haka, they happily obliged.

Numerous locals captured the unique moment on their phones – and a video of the incident uploaded onto the Wairoa College Facebook page has now been viewed more than 20,000 times. 

SuperMac's itself has even shared alternative footage to its own Facebook profile.

 

The Haka… in Supermac's!

The U18s squad departed New Zealand on Saturday and are also touring England, Wales, Belgium, France and Dubai, where they will compete with fellow students.

Today, they attended morning assembly at Dromore High School, also tucking into a hearty full-Irish breakfast.
