Haka


(via J.M.G.)

Clip description
"Professional rugby sevens players essentially beat each other up throughout the course of a match, with literally no padding. These guys are tough and, at the professional level, seriously athletic. Impressive, right?

As it turns out, the play itself can be merely the runner-up when it comes to impressive components of a match. New Zealand’s All Blacks defeated England 26-7 Sunday night in the 2014 Hong Kong Sevens Tournament. After the game is when things went from good to great.

The Haka dance is typically performed before a match to intimidate the opponent, but in this case the All Blacks performed in celebration.

Oh yeah, it was raining cats and dogs, and the team went shirtless."
