Maori Haka Performed For The Rival’s Coach Who Passed Away Is A Majestic Show Of Respect
What would you do to salute the man who made your team a team? What about your competitors’ team? These Maori All Blacks’ rugby players paid ultimate respect to their rival team’s coach Anthony Foley who died in his hotel room by performing a traditional Maori haka chant / dance before starting their game against Munster.
Four players laid down a jersey on the wet grass, and the entire starting lineup started to fiercely shout the haka chant, moving like warriors in the rain as a tribal salute to a fallen leader. After, they gave the jersey to Foley’s two sons, Dan and Tony. It takes courage to take time and say goodbye to someone like a man and to show respect for their rivals’ leader shows these men are truly honorable.
