Special Moment For All Blacks Debutant As Family Perform Stirring Haka

Te Toiroa Tahuriorangi made his debut for the All Blacks on Saturday, coming off the bench in a 46-24 win against Argentina in the Rugby Championship.

The 23-year-old scrum-half entered the game with ten minutes remaining as a replacement for TJ Perenara.

His day was made all the more special when his family - who were in the crowd at Trafalgar Park in Nelson - performed a haka to mark the day.

"It just makes the debut extra special," Tahuriorangi told Stuff.co.nz.

It was just an awesome feeling. To get that kind of haka just personifies where I come from, a little area where not many people make it out. I'm carrying all my whanau from back home.
