All Black’s plan to have beer with pitch invader foiled

The comedian Jarvo 69 struck again at the weekend, this time camouflaging himself as an All Black after masquerading as a member of the Indian cricket team earlier this year.

After joining the line up ahead of the national anthems, Jarvo 69 (real name Daniel Jarvis) was escorted from the pitch. He shared a video of the prank online soon after though, accompanied by the Mission Impossible music.

Take a look:

After the match, All Blacks scrum-half Brad Weber did a shoutout to Jarvis on Twitter, saying he was “keen to have a beer with him.”

A conversation was struck up between the pair, with Weber saying the “boys would love to see ya,” suggesting the comedian was quite a hit with the All Blacks.

However, Weber’s plans were soon scuppered when he found out that he could not meet the latest member of the All Blacks due to the fact that his side are in a bubble. He broke the news on Twitter, saying “For those wanting an update: I forgot we’re in a bubble so we couldn’t catch up. A real shame.”

Despite this setback, it was not a disappointing day overall for the All Blacks, as they came away comfortable 54-16 winners over Wales at the Principality Stadium, and returned to number one in the world rankings in the process.

The All Blacks pulled away in the second half having gone in at the break 18-6 ahead. Head coach Ian Foster praised his side’s defence for building the platform for their win.

“I thought the first 50 minutes they [Wales] were competitive. They played with a lot of passion, they held the ball like we expected them to, ran hard, but I thought our defence was outstanding,” Foster said.

“We were disciplined and put them under pressure and then once we started to pick up a few turnovers and force a few weak kicks we started to get the opportunities we were looking for.”
