This video of Lower Hutt resident Kristen Whiu, 40, celebrating Beauden Barrett’s try in the Rugby World Cup final has gone viral, with some suggesting he might be their biggest fan.

Kristen’s partner, Keri-Anne Brown, recorded the video of him cheering on Beauden and posted it on social media.

“We were winning by then, but that try just sealed it,” says Kristen. “There was nothing [the Wallabies] could do from there.”

With a lounge decked out in All Blacks flags, Kristen’s clearly mad for the ABs, but he can’t see what all the fuss is about his viral video.

“I’m just a Kiwi, you know? That’s just us. It’s been great for everyone.”
