WATCH - Maori All Blacks give special gift to Anthony Foley's sons ahead of Munster clash Newsdesk Newsdesk

The Maori All Blacks have paid homage to the late Anthony Foley ahead of their game with Munster at Thomond Park.

They placed an All Black jersey with the initials 'AF' in the centre of the field before performing their Timatanga Haka.

Munster head coach Foley died suddenly at the age of 42 last month, stunning the sport he had served all his life.

Maori skipper Ash Dixon neatly folded the jersey after the passionate Haka was complete and presented it to Anthony's sons Tony and Dan.

Last week, the Ireland squad formed a figure 8 on the pitch in Soldier Field, Chicago while the All Blacks performed their Haka.
