In his first season as Crusaders coach, Robertson led his side to the final victory, ending their trophy drought to claim their first title since 2008, unleashing his famed dance moves on the Ellis Park field.

Robertson break dances whenever a side he coaches wins a title, having done so previously with both the New Zealand under-20 Baby Blacks side and Canterbury in the Mitre 10 Cup, with the Crusaders just the latest notch on his belt.

Speaking to Newstalk ZB, Robertson explained how his now famous dance moves came about.

"I got that from my mum - I've always liked to dance and I'm probably a little bit better when I've got a couple in me, to be fair," Robertson told Mark Watson.

"I have some staple moves, but that might grow down the track."

"Luckily I'm flexible - to get from a windmill to a backspin is pretty good."

Robertson also said that the celebration originated during his time with the All Blacks.

Scott Robertson says that his team's plan against the Lions worked in the 25-17 win.

"It sort of happened back when I was playing - we had a couple of trips to Bermuda with the Classic All Blacks and I had a bit of a routine that alternated every other night."

"And that sort of carried on. The 'hoo hey Razor Ray' chant was probably started by myself and a couple of boys I played with over in Bermuda brought it back to New Zealand."
