Super Rugby Aotearoa: Breakdancing Crusaders coach Robertson celebrates fifth straight title in style

By the time the Crusaders raised a Super Rugby trophy for the fifth straight time, all anyone wanted to see was coach Scott Robertson bust out his dance moves to cap off the occasion. 

The southerners overcame the Chiefs 24-13 to retain their Aotearoa title at Christchurch's Orangetheory Stadium, adding to their three previous championships against Australian, South African and Argentinian teams.

Robertson has made it a tradition to celebrate his team's titles with a dance and the ultimate players' coach didn't disappoint this time. 

Some say the 46-year-old former loose forward is starting to show his age, but everyone will agree his performances are one of the highlights of the night. 

"He's an entertainer, but I think he's slowing down," Sky Sports commentator Jeff Wilson jokes. 

Fellow commentator and former Crusaders Israel Dagg sprang to his former coach's defence: "Nah, he's building it up."

Robertson has said that his dancing began as a young kid, inspired by his mother, before being further developing his moves as an All Blacks player.  

Robertson dances whenever his teams wins a title, and has done so previously with both the NZ U20 'Baby Blacks', Canterbury in the Mitre 10 Cup and, of course, the Crusaders.

He'll have another chance to dance, when Super Rugby Trans-Tasman kicks off between New Zealand and Australian franchises this week. Crusaders open their account at home against the Brumbies on Saturday.
