Students of Auckland Grammar performed 'Hogan's haka' to honour the cricketing great as his casket was led away at his funeral in Auckland. 

Crowe, nicknamed Hogan after he captained a junior team called Hogan's Heroes, is one the prestigious school's most famous old boys. 

Crowe, who died on March 3 following a long battle with cancer, was farewelled by more than 1000 people in a moving ceremony at Parnell's Holy Trinity Cathedral on Friday.
