The man who streaked to win a trip at last week's rugby league match in Christchurch has been fined $1000. 

In front off 17,000 spectators, Royce Edwards, 21, stripped off and ran naked across the field during the Warriors vs Manly Sea Eagles game in Christchurch last weekend.

He apologised for his actions when he appeared before Justices of the Peace in the Christchurch District Court on Thursday, Court News reports.

 Edwards told police we was trying to win a trip.

 He was fined $1000 and ordered to pay $130 in court costs.
