The Maori All Blacks paid a moving tribute to Anthony Foley ahead of their clash against Munster on Friday.

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

Ireland's players honoured him by forming a figure of eight - his shirt number - ahead of their win over New Zealand in Chicago last weekend.

The touring Maori All Blacks also honoured Foley, laying down a shirt with the initials AF on it before performing the haka ahead of their game at Thomond Park.

Captain Ash Dixon then presented the shirt to Foley's two sons Tony and Dan.
