The Nude Blacks have again donned their "clothes" to play their traditional pre-test match in Dunedin today.

A blind referee officiated in today's match between the nude Bottom Bus team and the semi-clothed Feejee Experience side.

The Logan Park match, which is played before any All Blacks test in the city, attracted a large crowd of fans.

The teams' efforts also drew strong media interest including an Australian-based production team which filmed the match for German television.

The All Blacks play Fiji at Carisbrook Stadium tonight.
