The New Zealand All Blacks are well-known for the pre-game haka. But it was this shirtless haka in the rain after winning the Hong Kong 7’s that got fans talking.

The New Zealand 7’s team clinched the Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens title and reclaimed the top spot in the series standings with 2 tournaments remaining. It was the first win in Hong Kong since 2011 for the All Blacks.
It was a well-rounded performance for the winners. Tim Mikkelson, Sam Dickson, DJ Forbes and Ben Lam all touched down for tries while Gillies Kaka hit 3 conversions.
The win puts New Zealand at the top of the HSBC 7’s World Series Standings. They are currently 7 points ahead of South Africa with tournaments in Scotland and England remaining to close out the campaign.
Japan defeated Italy 26-5 in the qualifier competition to earn promotion as a core team for the 2014/15 competition.
