Crazy scenes in State of Origin finale thanks to a streaker

by Aidan Elder | July 17, 2013

Sooo … this just happened in the State of Origin.

It’s some dramatic and slightly amusing scenes from the closing seconds of the final and crucial game in the series.

With the score poised 12-10 in favour of Queensland, the Maroons are pushing for the try that will secure the game and the series. Just when they look like they’re about to run in that try, a streaker arrives on the scene and soon after so do the security staff.

The players continue (less so the New South Wales players on defence) and run in the try, but the ref calls a halt to the game and after the video ref reviews it, he decides not to award the try. Probably correctly as a large naked man in the middle of play is generally a distraction to most athletes.

The Maroons don’t score, but they managed to close it out and it ultimately didn’t affect the result, but still, it’s crazy stuff and well worth a look – providing you can handle the sight of chubby male streakers.
