Christchurch parade the best for McCaw

The All Blacks were given a hero's welcome in central Christchurch this afternoon, with more than 10,000 lining the streets and turning out to Hagley Park.

The team arrived back in New Zealand yesterday after beating Australia 34-17 in the World Cup final, with thousands.

Today's parade travelled through parts of the central city and into Hagley Park, where team members were officially welcomed by Christchurch mayor Lianne Dalziel.
