A MASS striptease of Austria’s national rugby team, following their 48-0 defeat in the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius on Saturday, was filmed and uploaded onto the internet for all to see.

The video, which was put onto the social community website Virb and then taken up by the Lithuanian news portal Delfi, showed a group of 20 men singing and stripping in central Vilnius, nearby people in a bar clapped and cheered. Aleksandras Makarenka, President of the Lithuanian rugby federation, told international news agency Reuters:  “Yes, these were the men we played against on Saturday. I guess the defeat could have prompted them to do that.”
