VIDEO: Farewell haka for Lauaki

Date published: February 18 2017

Two fitting tributes for Sione Lauaki at his funeral as he receives a farewell haka and some lovely words from former coach Ian Foster.

Lauaki played 17 Tests for the All Blacks between 2005 and 2008. In 2012, he was diagnosed with kidney and cardiovascular ailments which forced his retirement. He sadly passed away in Auckland on Sunday at the age of 35.
