With tears in his eyes, Issac Luke shared a moment with his home fans that they will never forget.


The Warriors were thrashed 38-12 by Canberra in New Plymouth last night, but the Warriors and local Taranaki product Luke paid his respects to the crowd after the final whistle.

An emotional Luke led hundreds of fans in the stands in a spine-tingling haka.

Luke's Warriors teammates lined up behind him, watching in awe as the 28-year-old thanked his people for their support with the NRL taking a game to his home region for the first time.

After performing the dance Luke appears to wipe tears from his eyes as he's comforted by his teammates.
