Chiefs scrumhalf Te Toiroa Tahuriorangi was almost left in tears by an emotional post-game haka performed by his family after he made his All Blacks debut on Saturday.
The talented scrumhalf came off the bench as New Zealand defeated a spirited Argentina side 46-24 in a hugely entertaining Rugby Championship match in Nelson.
The 23-year-old halfback says he was touched by the actions of his father, father-in-law and fiancee following the game, who had made the trip to Nelson from Rotorua.
“It just makes the debut extra special,” he said.
“It was just an awesome feeling. To get that kind of haka just personifies where I come from, a little area where not many people make it out. I’m carrying all my whanau from back home.”
