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.
