Rugby World Cup: Kendra Cocksedge's parents emotional reaction to her leading Black Ferns haka

Black Ferns halfback Kendra Cocksedge has captured the emotional moment her parents realised their daughter was leading the haka before their first test against Australia.

The veteran starred for New Zealand in the 52-5 win, scoring a try and nailing four conversions, but the pre-match ritual captured the eyes and hearts of her family in attendance.

Standing front and centre, Cocksedge led the spine-tingling Ko Uhia Mai (Let It Be Known) in front of vocal supporters at Christchurch.

A friend in the Orangetheory Stadium stands recorded the heart-warming moment her parents realised their daughter was entrusted with the duties.

Cocksedge had not informed her parents she would lead haka, making for an emotional reaction, which she uploaded to her TikTok account.

The priceless video has garnered plenty of attention, with viewers flooding the comments section with appreciation.
