A streaker jumped the pitch barriers and invaded the field during the Warriors clash with Manly at Eden Park yesterday.

The naked man braved the elements in a rainy day for Auckland to make his dash from the stand, over the barriers and across the field during a pause in the game.

To loud cheers from the crowd, the man - who appears to be wearing no clothes or shoes - runs open-armed past the players and a number of security guards.

He successfully manages to evade an orange-high-vis clad security guard for a time, with a quick side-step, before he's taken down opposite the goal posts.

A video of the streak has been uploaded to social media, and has been shared by rugby fan site Big Hit Rugby.
