WATCH: New Zealand team perform spine-tingling Haka at Junction 14

People stopping off at Mayfield to fill their cars and grab a bite to eat got a bit more than they bargained for yesterday.

The service station is a regular stop for coaches and one pulled in yesterday with a team of young Kiwis on board.


The boys of Wairoa College, New Zealand are on a tour of Europe and Dubai, playing rugby against teams from Ireland, the UK and further afield.

Currently on the Irish leg of their trip, they agreed to perform a Haka for the staff and other customers while they were there.

These lads may be Under-18, but they still made an impressive sight performing the traditional dance.

That's one way to work up an appetite for your chicken burgers and curry chips.
