Sevens: Actor Jason Momoa inspires New Zealand men in Vancouver

Movie star Jason Momoa has inspired the All Blacks Sevens to a heart-stopping win over Argentina on day two of the Vancouver Sevens in Canada.

Wearing a classic All Blacks jersey with a white collar and number eight on the back, Momoa was seen sitting on the sidelines, cheering on the New Zealand men at BC Place.

Before their fifth-placed semi-final match against Argentina, the Aquaman and Game of Thrones star shook hands with the New Zealand players.

His presence seemed to help the All Blacks Sevens rally from 14 points down to win 26-21 against the Pumas, with Te Puoho Stephens scoring the match-winning try deep into stoppage time.

When Stephens crossed the line, Momoa was seen jumping out of his seat and celebrating like a kid at Christmas.

After the match, he went into the locker room and met all the players, before posing for a photo with the New Zealand squad.

"My first 7s tournament. So thankful to meet the @allblacks7s and go on the field. Win or lose. I bleed all black," Momoa posted on Instagram.

The 39-year-old, who is of Hawaiian descent, recently expressed his love for New Zealand, while promoting the Aquaman film.

The All Blacks Sevens could have used his help earlier in the day, when they suffered a heartbreaking quarter-final to Fiji, with the Olympic Champions scoring the game-winning try at the final whistle.

They now face England in the fifth/sixth playoff at 1:07pm (NZ time).
