Video: Mt Maunganui, Rangataua rugby clubs make the earth tremble with thunderous haka stand-off

A "born-and-bred Aussie" has described an emotionally-charged haka video that has emerged on Facebook as one of the most "spine-tingling things I'll ever see".

Michael Joseph Abrahams left a comment on a Toyota Grassroots Rugby haka video uploaded to its Facebook on Saturday.

The thunderous haka stand-off was between two Bay of Plenty rugby sides, Rangataua and Mt Maunganui, after the 2016 Baywide Premier One competition earlier this month.

The video shows the Mt Maunganui side taking centre-field and erupting into a haka of respect for their winning opponents.

Supporters, spectators and their Rangataua opponents hand them a warm round of applause and cheers.

Rangataua responds with its own earth-moving haka, that receives an even bigger and more thunderous round of cheers from supporters and spectators.

And, rightfully so.

The proud Maungatapu peninsula club, near Tauranga, won the Baywide Premier One competition on August 6; the first time in the club's history since the competition started.

Since it was uploaded at the weekend, the video has been viewed more than 52,000 times and shared 635 times.

Mr Abrahams wrote on the video, "I'm Aussie born and bred... if that isn't the most spine-tingling thing I'll ever see".

"Such respect and history, such stories and emotions. So proud that our soldiers came together to form the Anzacs... man, that was great."
