Video: Nude Blacks victorious

Cool conditions were no deterrent to the Nude Blacks as they took on the Springbox at the North Ground in Dunedin today.

In what has become something of a rugby tradition in the city, the teams played an unofficial curtain-raiser to tonight's All Blacks v Springboks test at Forsyth Barr Stadium and more than 1000 people turned out under grey skies to watch.

The home side ran out 30-20 winners in a match that came to life in a second half featuring a pizza delivery car and a guest appearance by a solitary nude woman who joined the Springbox for a single play and sneaked over for a try.

Earlier, the Nude Blacks entertained the crowd with their warm-ups and a haka, which reportedly drew as many groans as laughs from the watching crowd.
