It’s an essential part of any game of rugby. However, ‘tackle’ takes on a new dimension when it comes to nude rugby.
Breadcrumbs Media is currently searching for anyone who has what it takes to become a founding member of the inaugural official Australian Nude Rugby team.
Do you have the balls?
The concept is in its formative stages. However, already organisers hope to get teams together in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne for several exhibition matches.
From there, they hope to stage a “grand final” between the two best teams and/or send a team to Dunedin to challenge New Zealand’s original Nude Blacks.
Nude Rugby began in 2002 when the Irish visited Dunedin to play the All Blacks.
From humble beginnings, it grew into an annual event. It now generates international media attention and crowds in the thousands. Nude Rugby celebrates all that is unique about Dunedin – hardy souls taking on the world (and the elements) and not letting anything hinder the desire to have a good time.
WARNING: Explicit Nudity but no sex that we could see (and we looked very carefully)
Along with player recruitment, umpires who are “not easily offended” are also required.
NB: Umpires will remain fully clothed throughout the matches.
To give you an idea of what it’s all about, watch what happened when Australian comedy duo Hamish & Andy took up the challenge – and defended our national pride – when they visited a Nude Blacks training session in 2012.
