The Nude Blacks get the better of their Australian counterparts in annual match

The traditional Nude Blacks rugby challenge took place in Dunedin this past weekend, with the hosts taking on an invitational Australian side in a match watched by thousands at Alhambra Rugby Club, ahead of the All Blacks vs Wallabies Bledisloe Cup third Test.

Over 2000 students, rugby fans and curious onlookers turned out as a group of players wearing little more than their pride tackled the nude rugby game, which famously takes place in Dunedin each year.

The hosts won the match, although there was reportedly a disagreement over the final score, something to do with too many balls being dotted down over the tryline.

The match had everything from a Haka to big tackles, and the crowd loved every minute of it.

There were girls taking part too, although they were fully clothed, making their father's proud.

Amongst the innovations on the day was a new lineout call - the 'Tony Woodcock'.

Guest referee Scotty Stevenson called the shots, and reportedly penalised a player for illegally spooning. It's all fun and games until someone gets an eye poked out.

WARNING: There was a streaker at one stage in the match.

On a serious note, there are naked men running around in this video. If you find that offensive or innappropriate, do not watch. You can view a longer video though, if you so choose, here
