Social Engineering At The Rugby

Wow, my second security story within a week! Following on from the Chaser exploit at APEC an enterprising fellow joined the Wallabies on their victory lap after they defeated Wales (as part of the 2007 World Cup).

From the SMH coverage: "This Australian supporter was decked out in full Wallabies kit, including the No.6 jersey, gold head gear, footy in hand and even the bicycle pants under his shorts. So well disguised was he that he had nearly completed a full circuit, waving to Australian fans ... before he was pounced on by security guards."

Reminds of when Karl Power conned his way into the official team photo for a Manchester United Champions League fixture back in 2001.
