PROMO AIR NEW ZEALAND VIDEO SHOWING SAFETY TIPS FOR IRISH FANS FOR UPCOMING RUGBY UNION WORLD CUP MATCH AGAINST NEW ZEALAND STORY: New Zealand's national airline has poked fun at Irish fans with a mock pre-match 'safety tips' video ahead of the All Blacks' Rugby World Cup quarter-final with Ireland.

The video, which mimics an Air New Zealand pre-flight safety briefing and was released on the airline's Twitter feed https://twitter.com/FlyAirNZ, advises fans of Joe Schmidt's team, who have won two of their last three matches against the All Blacks, that they can expect "some upcoming turbulence" at Tokyo Stadium on Saturday (October 19).

They are then told to fasten their seatbelts ahead of the All Blacks' pre-match haka, or traditional challenge, "so they don't flee too early", while handheld electronic devices should be stored in pockets, so as to avoid being thrown at a screen.

Children should also be stowed away "in the event that language becomes colourful", while fans are advised to put their heads in their hands in the crouch position if the All Blacks score an early try.
