Notorious Pitch Invader 'Jarvo' Seen Lining Up Alongside The Japanese Rugby Team

Part-time pitch invader and full-time serial pest 'Jarvo' has struck again, this time tormenting the Japanese rugby team.

The Japanese players were just about to start belting out the country's national anthem ahead of their game against Ireland when they noticed some random bloke standing on the end of the line.

No surprises, but it was Daniel 'Jarvo' Jarvis.

The notorious pitch invader has made a habit of gatecrashing some of the biggest sporting events in the world.

Well, now it was the Japanese national team's turn to be featured alongside him.

With the national anthem well underway, stadium security finally sprung into action when they noticed the bloke casually standing next to the players.

The television cameras even glanced past him, completely unaware that he wasn't actually a finely-tuned rugby player.

Realising who it was, security sheepishly made their way onto the field and escorted him away without any fuss.

Jarvo even gave the Japanese players a cheeky wave on his way out.

It's a miracle that this bloke can keep going about his work without anyone recognising him.

Besides, he has managed to feature in some huge sports games as of late.

'Jarvo' made his debut back in August, bursting onto the scene during the cricket match between India and England.

Seen donning some Indian cricket whites with 'Jarvo 69' on the back, the man himself brought the game to a grinding halt when he sprinted onto the field and bowled a ball at one of the English batsmen.

This wasn't going to be just a one-off appearance for him though.

Just a few weeks later, he made another cameo, this time wearing a tiny American football helmet and jersey at the NFL game between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Miami Dolphins in London.

Only last weekend, the big man struck again, this time lining up alongside the All Blacks Principality Stadium.

To be fair to him, his outfit choices are clearly helping him remain inconspicuous.

Security guards at sports grounds around the globe are probably watching anxiously over the shoulder, hoping to one day stop Jarvo in his tracks.
