Honourary Maori and all around legend Jason Momoa was spotted wearing a vintage All Blacks jersey while cheering on the Kiwi mens Sevens team this week.

He was also seen giving the All Blacks Sevens team handshakes before they ran out onto the pitch, and even posed for a photo with the boys in sheds after the game.

His presence seemed to boost the Kiwi boys to a last gasp win over Argentina, but it turns out it might be the mana of the jersey he was wearing.

"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.

Momoa's told allblacks.com the jersey belonged to All Black great Zinzan Brooke - and was a gift from a colleague almost two decades ago.

"It was a gift from my stuntman Glenn Ennis about 15 years ago when I was on Stargate Atlantis. He was captain for Canada and played against the All Blacks at the 1991 Rugby World Cup where he traded jerseys with the legendary Zinzan Brooke," Momoa said.

"It is one of the greatest presents I have ever been given. I never leave home without it. It always travels with me."

Brooke, who retired in 1997 after making 58 test appearances, scored one of the All Blacks' five tries in a 29-13 quarterfinal win over the Canadians.

Ennis was his opposite number in that match.
