Persistence paid off for one mad Otago fan in a tutu who
chased down the team's bus.
The comedy sequence unfolded after Otago rugby supporters'
celebration activities on the Dunedin welcome sign near
Allanton caught the attention of Otago players on the bus
travelling from Dunedin International Airport.
University of Otago student Ryan Hammer (23) was rewarded for
his attempts to get close to the players and the Ranfurly
Shield as the bus stopped and Kees Meuws stepped outside.
