The All Blacks were sent off to the rugby World Cup in England with a stirring Kiwi haka from members of the Air New Zealand tarmac crew at Auckland Airport last night.

Dressed in their high-vis jackets, the airport workers gave the All Blacks a classic Kiwi farewell on the tarmac.

All Black Sam Cane posted the vision of the haka on his Facebook page with the caption, "Thank you to the New Zealand public and the Air New Zealand staff for the wicked send off! Very excited to start this journey! ?#?RWC2015?".

Air New Zealand tweeted a picture of the traditional farewell "to say our final well wishes to the All Blacks as they head off tonight".
