WATCH: New Zealand rugby team perform haka in the Alhambra, Granada
Members of the New Zealand “All Blacks” rugby team performed the famous Maori war dance during their visit to the Alhambra in Granada.
The team, who have won the last two Rugby World Cups, have been training at the High Performance Centre in Sierra Nevada.
The performance used the Patio de los Leones as a stage, which is one of the most symbolic areas in the Alhambra.
After a brief speech, the haka was performed. This was to give thanks to the city of Granada for their reception and hospitality.
The traditional dance was led by Hosea Gear. He was flanked by teammates Anthony Tuitavake, Stuart Doig and Brad Linklater.
