Larnach Castle was the venue for a clash between the Nude Blacks and the Romanian Vampires on Saturday, the third naked rugby game in Dunedin this year.

Organiser Ralph Davies said about 250 people turned out to watch, which was "pretty good" considering people had to travel further.

About 10 local and international media filmed and photographed the game, with images expected to be broadcast worldwide.

Romanian team management also took time out before Saturday night's game against England to see a lighter side of rugby. Team police liaison officer Sergeant Hugh Tait, of Dunedin, said: "They thought it was great".

Nude Blacks captain David Bourke said the team was "keen to get the season back on a roll" after a loss to a Spanish women's team two weeks ago.

The Nude Blacks won six tries to four, he said.

 

 

What is wrong with NZ?

What the heck is wrong with you Kiwis these days? Every time I look in the NZ press, some idiots are wanting to get their kit off and flash their private parts at each other "for a laugh", like a bunch of infants. It's not funny, it's pathetic and rather sad, and it's giving NZ a bad name across the world. Grow up, guys, keep your kit on.
