To sports now
and the Maori All Blacks have just completed their first hit
out in Vancouver before Saturday’s historic
match against Canada. Reporter Tamati Rimene-Sproat
watched the squad training and spoke to one of the new faces
in the team and discovered a young man who’s into his reo
just as much as his rugby. A young star who has the opportunity
to live out a childhood dream. This is a dream of mine,
to play for the Maori All Blacks. This is awesome. From Super Rugby to NZU20’s, now the Te Ati Awa man has
progressed to the Maori All Blacks. Apart from Rugby his other main goal is to better
his te reo Maori fluency and is encouraging his team
mates to get involved. This isn’t the first time the
Maori All Backs have played Canada, but it is a first here in Vancouver. Despite having minimal time
together as a team it is predicted the Maori All Blacks will be relying heavily
on their natural flair and ability. The biggest challenge for Walden
is to show his worth to the coaches. The team naming is Thursday. Tamati Rimene-Sproat, Te Karere.
