During the university rugby match between local rivals Newcastle and Northumbria, a nude pitch invader decided that he wanted to get in on the action and found his way onto the field before tackling the player with ball.
But within seconds, players from opposing teams started fighting, leaving the streaker able to make a quick exit without getting caught up in the scuffle.
Tongan international rugby player Willis Koloofai said: “I’ve played a lot of rugby, but I’ve never seen anything like this before.”
“The guy had so much time on the pitch, about 4 minutes to do what he wanted. The atmosphere was pretty good in the stadium as you’d expect between two rival Universities, but when he ran on, it got even more charged – it was so entertaining.”
“He lined up as if he belonged there as Northumbria’s 16th man, crouched down on his knees. Then as the ball came near him, he executed a textbook tackle on the Newcastle kid.”
