Wellington Rugby sevens toned down for '08

WELLINGTON, New Zealand, Jan. 28 (UPI) -- Organizers of the Wellington, New Zealand, rugby sevens are putting a dress code in place for the first time in the history of the tournament.

Any of the nearly 70,000 fans who will attend the event can also become banned for two years if caught trying to sneak alcohol into the stadium, The Dominion Post reported Monday.

Wellington Regional Stadium Trust chief executive David Gray said complaints last year related to spectators not being properly covered. Including film personality Borat, who went dressed in a lime green Lycra V-string.

"There were a couple (of costumes) last year, that by the time 8 p.m. rolled around, what little bits they had, had been lost in the heat of the day," said Gray.

The stadium's dress code states: "Costumes must conform to reasonable standards of decency; They should not be so large that you take up more than your seat space; accessories that look like, or can be used as weapons are not permitted."
