Rugby World Cup: All Blacks show scrummaging power against parked car in semi-final build-up

Let this be a lesson to unthinking motorists around the world - park in the All Blacks' space at your own peril.

During the build-up to their must-win World Cup semi-final showdown against Argentina, the NZ forward pack was called on for a little extra scrummaging practice, when confronted by a parked Land Rover impeding their path down a narrow Paris street.

On the Front Row Daily Show podcast, footage has emerged of the team's strongmen bouncing the car from their spot.

"Teamwork on and off the field," tweeted the team account.

The performance of the All Blacks forwards has been intrumental in their progress to the tournament's final four, including a superhuman display against world No.1 Ireland in the quarter-finals.

With hooker Codie Taylor sin-binned for collapsing a maul on their goal-line, the shot-handed NZ pack dominated their counterparts in a scrum moments later, with young props Tamaiti Williams and Fletcher Newell laying the foundation.

They can also be seen in the forefront of the car-moving effort and have, unsurprisingly, been retained in their supersub roles for the semi against the Pumas.
