After a warm welcome at the airport this morning, the boys in black have taken the glittering Webb Ellis Cup to the streets of Auckland to share their victory with their Kiwi supporters.

Coach Steve Hansen and Richie McCaw held on tight to their hard-earned trophy as they slowly made their way down to Victoria Park, where a huge crowd waited to see the team cross the stage.

The All Blacks took their time to chat, sign autographs and take pictures with the thousands of cheering fans who had turned out for the occasion, before they were welcomed with an official karanga and haka.

“Seeing you all here has made it all worthwhile,” Richie told the crowd.

“There’s no better feeling than being able to hold that cup again. We had heard this country was going pretty nuts on Sunday morning.”

The victory parade is the first of several scheduled for the team in the next few days. After this, they’ll head down to Christchurch and Wellington for similar events.
