Nov 9 (Stuff) – The serial pitch invader known as ‘Jarvo 69’ joined Japan’s lineup for the national anthems against Ireland in Dublin – a week after gatecrashing the All Blacks’ pre-match ceremony in Wales.
Englishman Daniel Jarvis has become notorious for evading security at sport stadia around the world.
This time, he was spotted at the end of the Japanese line at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium on Saturday (Sunday NZ), wearing a Japan replica jersey with ‘Jarvo 69’ emblazoned on the back.
After the Kimi Ga Yo anthem was over, Jarvo was led away by stadium stewards.
Jarvo – who had been wearing an All Blacks jersey with his name and trademark number on the back – later told The Rugby Pod that he wasn’t even arrested for his pitch invasion antics.
He also said he wanted to be an All Black “because they are the biggest, best rugby team in the world’’ and the “best to watch’’.
Jarvis first shot into the sporting sidelight when, wearing Speedos, he gatecrashed a diving event at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.
He has also got onto the field during two England-India cricket tests.
