Watch New Zealand and Tonga exchange pre-match rituals
The players got very up close and personal at points

Over the years, we have got used to New Zealand rugby teams perform the haka, while the opponent watches and accepts the challenge.
The All Blacks did exactly that as they prepared to lock horns with Tonga in their Rugby League World Cup clash.
But Tonga came back with their own war dance.
And it had the desired effect as Tonga pulled off a shock 28-22 win in their Pool B clash in Sydney on Saturday.
