Ostensibly, the Rugby World Cup is held every four years to determine the world’s best rugby union team, but it’s becoming increasingly apparent it’s really just a manly man’s dance competition. The Cup’s real intent was foreshadowed by host city Milton Keynes kicking things off with a foot-stomping drum competition held in the streets.

New Zealand’s rugby team was the first to introduce the war dance (or haka) to the sport, and the defending Cup champions have long set the standard in pre-match dance performances.
Following their latest dancing exhibition, the All Blacks advanced to the semi-final round of Rugby World Cup 2015 with a nine-try demolition of France.

Aside from New Zealand, Samoa also fields an impressive dance crew. They may have lost to the Scots, but they won over the audience with a post-match Siva-Tau dance.

South Africa’s rugby union team, know as the Springboks, may not have the same haka pedigree as the Kiwis, but they think they can dance, and dance they do.
