The Maori All Blacks team have paid tribute to Anthony Foley during their match against Munster at Thomond Park.

The Ireland and Munster legend passed away in Paris on October 16th at the age of 42, drawing tributes from across the rugby world.

Tonight, the Maori All Blacks faced Munster in Limerick.

Before performing the traditional pre-game Haka, captain Ash Dixon and three members of the team walked to the half-way line and placed a jersey with the late Munster head coach's initials between both sides as a mark of respect to him.

 

 

After completing the Haka, Dixon then presented Foley's sons, Dan and Tony with the jersey.
