The New Zealand All Blacks rugby team usually dances the traditional haka before its matches as a form of intimidation.

But after capturing the World Series Sevens tournament title with a 26-7 win over England on Sunday, the boys stripped off their shirts and began to celebrate with the Shirtless Haka we all deserve.

60 Minutes Sports happened to air a piece this weekend all about the ritual, if you want to learn more: “The All Blacks pre-game ritual, the Haka, originates with their country’s indigenous Maori people whose ancestral war dance is a fitting start for a game that’s as close to warfare as any in sporting history.”
