The All Blacks touched down in Rome last weekend for a fierce battle against Italy's favourite rugby team, their National Azzuri.
They weren't the only ones flying their colours as 70,000+ fans filled the Stadio Olimpico in Rome's Flaminio district for the first ever All Blacks rugby game in the impressive 82,307 seat stadium.
Te Ataahia Hurihanganui of Masterton and her husband Davide Castorina of Rome were with their mixed group of Kiwis and locals to watch the game on Saturday.
They dressed up for the occassion and enjoyed the 80-minute spectacular of fine rugby and world-class cheering from the supporters. GO BLACK! FORZA ITALIA!
