Rugby World Cup: Black Ferns star Ruby Tui leads packed Eden Park in celebratory rendition of classic Māori waiata after final triumph

Endearing Black Ferns star Ruby Tui has seized the opportunity to celebrate their side's World Cup final triumph in her own inimitable fashion. 

Tui was still clearly buzzing with emotion, after the defending champions held on to beat England 34-31, passionately pleading for her compatriots to continue embracing the women's game in her post-match interview.

No stranger to the microphone as a part-time broadcaster herself, Tui then launched into a full-blooded rendition of the vintage Māori waiata Tutira Mai Nga Iwi.

More than 40,000 fans set a new record for attendance at a women's rugby test, with thousands still remaining at Eden Park long after fulltime.

After taking in a dramatic spectacle of a final, and watching the Ferns lift the trophy and perform their haka Ko Uhia Mai, those left needed no coaxing into joining Tui for a full-blooded celebratory singalong.

The World Cup win was the sixth for the Black Ferns, backing up their victory over the same opponents in the 2017 final at Belfast.
