ALL BLACKS ADVOCATE FOR THE VALUES OF RUGBY IN DAILY LIFE

Oviedo / Members of the New Zealand rugby team, known as “All Blacks”, have highlighted in Oviedo the importance of Rugby values such as respect, humility, solidarity, integration and coexistence for daily life.

These are values that go beyond the sport, coincided in pointing out several of the members of the famous national team who will collect Princess of Asturias Award for Sports from the handsof King Felipe VI 2017 on Friday in Oviedo (Spain).

The coach Grant Fox, players Israel Dagg and Jordie Barrett, and former player Keven Mealamu, who has the privilege of having been the 135th most times wearing the All Blacks jersey, spoke with press.

When they asked about the reason why the people like All Blacks, Fox alluded to “normality” on a daily basis, which coincides with the lifestyle of most people, and explained that the selection is a reflection of what is New Zealand, a group “small, hardworking and humble”.

To these values that represent “All Blacks” are added the great sporting successes achieved by the team: it is the only rugby team that has won three World Cups, two consecutive ones, and the team with the best winning percentage, 77% the 552 matches played between 1903 and 2016, according to official statistics.

Regarding the traditional “haka“, the Maori dance they represent before the matches, Mealamu said that it is a “link” and a “connection” with Aboriginal culture, besides being a “challenge” to the rival team, which is a “privilege” to share it with the world whenever they carry it out of their country.

The “history of this invincible shirt” has taken to the streets, in the marina of Gijón, where the public can observe the photographs of the exhibition in the New Zeeland Rugby Union. (October 19, 2017, EFE/Practica Español)
