Kia ora! TJ Perenara greets All Blacks halfback rival Te Toiroa Tahuriorangi into camp with a hongi

They may be fighting for the same position in the All Blacks, but that hasn’t stopped halfback TJ Perenara from giving his Chiefs counterpart Te Toiroa Tahuriorangi the warmest of welcomes into the All Blacks camp.

Tahuriorangi was arriving for the team’s North Island foundation day, his first time in All Blacks’ camp, when he was embraced by Perenara with a hongi.

The warm welcome is yet another sign of the strong brotherhood in All Blacks camp.

Injured duo Sonny Bill Williams and Dane Coles were also at the day in Auckland with the pair completing a gym session with their All Blacks teammates.
