The New Zealand sevens side hope they can dance their way through this weekend's USA Sevens and remain on top of the World Series standings but some of the side showed their dancing skills in Las Vegas.

Liam Messam, Sione Molia and Josh Van Lieshout visited a Las Vegas school, where they competed in a number of challenges including a Whip/Nae Nae dance-off with children. The hip-hop moves became popular after Silento's 2015 debut single, which contained the whip and the nae nae.

"It's awesome to come out to these sorts of events," Messam told allblacksTV. "These kids probably don't know much about rugby but to see them have a big smile on their face perks the boys up and puts a smile on our faces, too. Anything we can do to make an impact around the world, it's always good to put smiles on kid's faces."
