NZ Maori lose the game but win Irish hearts
The New Zealand Maori played a spirited game against Munster in Ireland over the weekend but went down 27-14. The game was, however, overshadowed by the death of Munster Coach. Just ahead of the Haka the Maori All Blacks paid tribute by presenting a jersey to Andrew Foley’s family.
The game itself was an excellent display of rugby with the final score: New Zealand Maori All Blacks 14 (J Lowe, A Curtis tries; O Black 2 cons) lost to Munster 27 (N Scannell, D Sweetnam, R O'Mahony tries, penalty try; I Keatley 2 cons, pen). HT: 14-17.
