The Dunedin-based Nude Blacks, New Zealand's premier naked rugby team, lost for the first time on Saturday, beaten 25-20 by a clothed women's team from Spain.


The Nude Blacks named for the country's elite All Blacks rugby team played the exhibition hours ahead of Saturday's World Cup match between Argentina and England at the city's 30,000-seat Otago Stadium.

A more modest crowd of about 1,500 watched the all-male team get outclassed at the less prestigious Kettle Park by the visiting Spanish Conquistadores, who count a pole dancer, a teacher and a student among their number.

The Nude Blacks play an invitational side before every international rugby game in Dunedin.
