PICS: The All Blacks Are In Town And Tried Their Hand At Hurling And Gaelic Football

They’re recognised by some as the greatest sport team in the world but how well would they do at Croke Park on All-Ireland Sunday?

The New Zealand rugby team have arrived in Ireland ahead of the much-anticipated clash between the two nations at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday and by the looks things they’re spending their time doing as the locals do.

The All Blacks joined up with some members of the Dublin football and hurling teams to try their hand at our national sports. The ‘cross-sport skills challenge’ took place at Castleknock Golf Club and featured the likes of Dean Rock and Conal Keaney showing the lads how it’s done in Ireland.

Judging by the pics, great craic was had by all…

It’s yet to be confirmed if the Dubs took part in a Haka but we look forward to watching the upcoming video to find out. Given the winning mentality of the four-in-a-row All-Ireland champs, they’d probably be confident enough beating the All Blacks themselves this weekend. Then again, it might be best to leave it to the pros.
