New Zealand's Rugby League are currently in the United Kingdom as they play a three-Test series with England.

The Kiwi's took time out their busy schedule to visit Liverpool's Melwood training ground and while they were there performed their legendary Haka for the Red squad.

The war cry is synonymous with New Zealand and many people clamour to see it in action. Unsurprisingly, the Anfield players were impressed by the act and one player, in particular, could not hide his excitement.

The France international, who faces six to eight weeks on the sidelines with a knee injury, is a hit with Liverpool fans and was in inspired form following the arrival of Jurgen Klopp.

His injury will be a huge blow to the Merseyside outfit as he looked to be forming a solid partnership with Martin Skrtel.

But one man's loss is another's gain and Dejan Lovren is poised to have an extended run in the first-team.

His performances since a £20 million move from Southampton in the summer of 2014 have been questionable to say the least and failure to capitalise on his opportunity could spell the end of his career at Anfield.

The Croatian showed his quality during his time on the south coast but is yet to recreate that form at Liverpool. Fans will be hoping he can finally step up as their Champions League hopes hang in the balance at this early stage of the campaign.
