As far as post-nuptial options go, heading to straight to the rugby ground to watch your team lose has to be fairly close to the bottom of the list.

But try telling that to this newlywed couple in Johannesburg on Sunday morning (NZT).

The couple showed up still dressed in full wedding regalia to cheer on their Lions in their clash with the Crusaders.

The pair only had eyes for the game as they took in the action accompanied by two fellow supporters, who stood behind them holding a "just married" sign above their heads - just to clarify, of course.

Ultimately it wasn't the happiest of honeymoons for the couple, as the Lions fell 14-8 in a low-scoring affair against the New Zealand side.
