    New Zealand's eastern, art-deco inspired city of Napier is a city consumed by Rugby World Cup fever - as French and Canadian fans descend ahead of the clash between their nations' teams.

    With the Canadian team in a rare spotlight, and the French squad in a typically confidant mood, both sets of players and fans have been treated to a taste of Kiwi culture - from the "running of the lambs" to a flash mob haka.
