Notorious Pitch Invader Strikes Again To Pose As All Blacks Rugby Player

Notorious Pitch Invader Strikes Again To Pose As All Blacks Rugby Player

A notorious pitch invader nicknamed Jarvo 69 has struck again after joining the All Blacks team for their national anthem ahead of the Wales match last night (30 October).

As reported by news.com.au, Daniel 'Jarvo' Jarvis made headlines earlier this year after crashing the Lord's field during a cricket match and attempting to pose as a member of the Indian team.

Overall, he invaded the pitch three separate times during the test series between England and India this year, even managing to deliver a ball to Moeen Ali and making contact with Jonny Bairstow at The Oval.

And now it looks like he's moved away from cricket to focus on rugby with his latest stunt.

The prankster was seen donning the All Blacks jersey with 'Jarvo 69' on the back as he ran onto the field to join the team for their anthem.

A video posted on his Twitter account shows Jarvo taking off his jacket to reveal the jersey before running through the crowd and standing at the end of the team line.

To be fair to the guy, he managed to stand there for a fair while before he was eventually escorted off the turf by security at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff.

The serial pitch invader also posted a picture of himself shortly after the stunt, writing: "I just made my rugby debut for New Zealand facing the mighty Wales!"

Clearly the prank didn't phase the New Zealand team, as they went on to win the game against Wales with a heavy 54-16 victory.

It's not known whether Jarvo - who also managed to invade an NFL game earlier this month - will face any charges for the incident.

The YouTuber was arrested last month after his run in at The Oval cricket match.

He was charged with aggravated trespass after running onto the field and colliding with Bairstow.

Jarvis attended Croydon Magistrates' Court this month where he pleaded not guilty to the aggravated trespass charge.

The content creator's lawyer Bruce Reid told the court that his client did not intend to 'intimidate any person or to obstruct or disrupt any activity as alleged'.

Jarvo was granted unconditional bail by the magistrates and the case will go to trial on 23 March next year.
