Move over John Campbell - students at Pillans Point School had a visit from the New Zealand All Blacks today and they proved they are not scared of asking tough questions.

Israel Dagg, Tony Woodcock, Liam Messam, Steven Luatua and Frank Halai arrived at the school at 11am, as part of the All Blacks to the Nation tour, which sees members of the team visiting seven towns in just one day.

Pillans Point School gave the stars a warm welcome, with members of the Kapa Haka group performing before selected students got the chance to ask the boys some curly question - from what they ate the night before a game to if they "scored free clothes while they are on tour.''

Students and teachers also got the chance to pose with the All Blacks before they took off to Otumoetai College to take part in a training session with rugby teams from several Western Bay colleges.

The final stop will be the Tauranga Art Gallery at 1.30pm, where the All Blacks will meet with Massive Company, mixing the art of theatre, visual art and of our nation's leading sport.
