VIDEO: Japan refuse to pander to All Blacks and approach the Haka

This was refreshing to see from Japan, who everybody secretly supports in some way or another. The Japan captain Michael Leich appeared to relish the challenge that he and his team has set down for the All Blacks and the commentators appeared to enjoy it too.

This is someone we should see more over the Autumn Internationals. Other teams openly making a spectacle of this in a respectful manner. It’s clear to see that the All Blacks and their fans appreciated this gesture from Japan too.
