The "war dance" Billy Riggins and the team do in practice is incorrectly labelled as Samoan. It is actually a Maori dance called the Haka, to ward off evil spirits, and the New Zealand rugby league team perform this before every game.
Zach Gilford appears in this episode as Matt Saracen for the first time since season 4.
