Streaker claims double standards after female let off

A STREAKER who received a criminal conviction for his naked All Blacks dash earlier this year is surprised that Saturday's female streaker got off scot-free, saying "it should be the same rule for everyone".

Christchurch builder Adam Holtslag, 28, was convicted of offensive behaviour and fined $500 for what a Justice of the Peace told him was "offensive to an awful lot of people".

He was also banned from Dunedin's Forsyth Barr Stadium for two years.

Today Mr Holtslag expressed shock that the same treatment wasn't given to Rose Kupa, a 25-year-old delivery driver from Flaxmere, who ran across the field, naked apart from a woolly hat, in the second half of Saturday's Rugby Championship rugby test against Argentina in Napier.

She escaped with a formal warning and later told of her delight in ticking the All Blacks streak off her bucket list.

"That's a bit one-sided isn't it?," Mr Holtslag said this morning.

"She touched a player. And she was showing a bit more than me anyway... .

"It should be the same rule for everyone. If anything, I thought they would've been a bit harsher on her after the one I did."

Ms Kupa sprinted from behind the All Blacks' try-line to Argentina's half before security eventually stopped her.

The streak held up the game for several minutes, as the All Blacks prepared for a defensive lineout.

Family First NZ said the decision not to prosecute Ms Kupa "sends a dangerous message to copycats who also want their minute of fame".

Families were rightly concerned that they and their children may be confronted by full nudity in a public place," said national director Bob McCoskrie.

Family First said it would write to Police Minister Anne Tolley to ask her police commissioner to review the decision.

Napier City Council will this week look at trespassing Ms Kupa from McLean Park.

All Blacks coach Steve Hansen said Ms Kupa's streak was "a pain in the backside, excuse the pun".

"The question is, how do they get on? There was enough of them in the jackets, you'd think they'd be able to stop them," he said.

"They did really good tackles at the end of it, but they probably should have done something before she went on."
