DUNEDIN, New Zealand (AP) — New Zealand's premier naked rugby team has been exposed.

The Dunedin-based Nude Blacks lost for the first time Saturday, beaten 25-20 by a clothed women's team from Spain.

The Nude Blacks — named for the country's elite All Blacks rugby team — played the exhibition hours ahead of Saturday's World Cup match between Argentina and England at the city's 30,000-seat Otago Stadium.

A more modest crowd of about 1,500 watched the all-male team get outclassed at the less prestigious Kettle Park by the visiting Spanish Conquistadores, who count a pole dancer, a teacher and a student among their number.

The Nude Blacks play an invitational side before every international rugby game in Dunedin.
