NSFW Rugby - Naked New Zealand Fellows (Action Shot Slideshow from Norway's largest newspaper)

The visiting women's team (with one guy) took off one item of clothing each time they scored (then put it back on).

Official Site of the All Blacks Team

Some details from the Wiki page:
The New Zealand men's national rugby union team, often called the All Blacks, represent New Zealand in international rugby union competitions. Rugby union is regarded as New Zealand's national sport. Winners of the inaugural Rugby World Cup, New Zealand are the leading points scorers of all time and the only international rugby team with a winning record against every test nation they have ever played.

Previously and also previously.

(Apologies to sports enthusiasts if I haven't covered the finer sporting points. I don't know anything about rugby. Mostly I wanted to post the naked fellows.)

Coed naked rugby (rough, tough and in the buff) is real?

Are all the novelty T-shirts from high school real? Randy Johnson's Casino (liquor in the front, poker in the rear)?

My mind is blown.

So, all the naked dudes have a temp tattoo on their asses for some New Zealand flight aggregator. This kind of seems like naked viral advertising. Also, that one guy has more foreskin than shaft.

I'm at work so I can't actually see what y'all are talking about, but this talk of advertising is reminding me of a bit from the most recent QI episode. They were talking about how studies of human gaze have shown that women tend to look at people's faces when they first meet them. Men on the other hand, look at their face and their genitals (and it doesn't matter what orientation you are or what gender the other person is).

Anyway, one of the panelists joked that that means marketers should start putting advertising on people's crotches. Looks like somebody took that to heart! (Or other body parts, rather.)

I think the world needs more nudity and this whole situation is fabulous, but it's still lost on me why they were playing in the nude... Is this just a group of nudist men who like to play rugby? Are they trying to raise money/awareness about something? Just having a laugh? Could someone please explain the context here, as I can't read Norwegian.

It appears to be taken from (and links to) an Otago Daily Times article, which is in English (but, being puritan Dunedin, lacks pictures).

Interestingly (or not) grabaseat.co.nz is a cheap flights website run by Air New Zealand, who also sponsor the All Blacks.

So that you could check out their polka-dotted pink boxer shorts, which are adorable.

This happens annually in Dunedin since 2002, home of Otago University (NZ's oldest) and the teams largely comprise students of both sexes. Games are usually played in July / August in the middle of winter (Dunedin is very south which in the southern hemisphere = cold).

They've played some extra games this year in honour of Rugby World Cup 2011 being held in NZ (100K+ visitors for 6 weeks of rugger); they also played Fiji and the Welsh Willies back in July.

Games usually get news coverage as the traditional "wacky last item on the bulletin".

(Only done for the joke; I'm truly pro male nudity on just about every non-familial occasion. And rugby must have the highest nudity of any sport whose uniform is not a Speedo)

Sure, I don't see why it wouldn't. As long as they were aware/consenting to the nudity and the photographs, and the comments didn't set off the creepo meter too much.

Also, people making "it must be cold" etc. jokes: um...things can shrink a lot when you're running and exercising. Google it if you must lol.
posted by 1000monkeys at 7:01 PM on September 14, 2011


In my opinion the ancient greeks totally had the right idea and in an ideal world all sports would be played in the nude. I watch sports to see athletes do things with their bodies! When you put clothing and padding and helmets between the athletes and people's eyeballs, you're blocking people's view.

Well, if this is in Dunedin it probably is pretty cold - I've never been there or anywhere in NZ, but I hear it's not uncommon for unwanted lounges to be pulled to the ground and set on fire to keep the fans warm.

Looking at the photos it seems the members of the guys team were getting together with the women's team already, in some cases painfully, so catching up later would probably be redundant.

(Wasn't there also a 'nude' All Blacks ad for Air NZ a while ago?)

This is really funny (odd tbh) but the Oct issue of some magazine of mom's arrived and its the Singaporean edition (a nation well known for banning Cosmopolitan from its shores for eg) and it had a very broad shouldered naked man in an ad. His top half mind you, and the headline was something about "Our robust strength is just for you" - I had to read the fine print to figure out what the ad was for... coffee beans.

"Would this sort of post be okay if it was about women?"

It actually is about woman. I don't know if everyone/you noticed but this was a game against a visiting side of woman from Spain?

The whole event is light hearted fun. Most people here seem to understand that. Though: Oi, Glinn! This has absolutely nothing to do with the All Blacks. It costs a lot more to get them naked.

Great game against Japan yesterday. Really fun Rugby to watch.

But more on topic: All Blacks, totally the best looking rugby side in the world, and not bad at the game either.
