Rugby Canada hails largest crowd ever

Digital Manager, Canadian Olympic Committee

On a sunny brisk-cold Sunday in Toronto, in front of the biggest crowd in Canadian Rugby history, Canada took on the New Zealand Maori All Blacks.

Haka War Dance

The traditional ‘Haka’ war dance is performed by the New Zealand Maori All Blacks prior to each game.  It’s meant to intimidate the opposing team.
