ABC viewers were treated to a different kind of show for State of Origin Game II when an NRL fan bared her boobs for the camera during a live report.
The moment came as ABC sportswriter Jessica Stewart made a live cross from Perth’s Optus Stadium on Sunday night, 30 minutes before kick-off.
Crowds of NSW Blues and Queensland Maroons fans walked behind Stewart as she spoke to news presenter Gemma Veness about the atmosphere, the fans and the game itself.
At one point, a woman was seen donning a Maroons hat and scarf and running behind Stewart.
She continued to lift her crop top and flashed the camera for a split second.

Veness appeared to be staying professional and made no mention of the NRL fan’s exposure.
Stewart didn’t notice the flash as she shared her pre-game report.
The blinking wasn’t the only rough moment captured uncensored by the ABC cameras.
As the public broadcaster showed footage of NRL fans entering Optus Stadium, a Blues supporter could be heard saying, “Up the f***ing Blues!”
Nathan Cleary wrote his name in the folklore of the State of Origin with a performance to remember the ages that led New South Wales legend Andrew Johns to claim the superstar halfback was a better player than he was his same age.
Cleary, 24, put on an unusually subdued performance for Brad Fittler’s side in Game I earlier this month, with Queensland’s Cameron Munster officiating the show in Sydney with five eighths.
The Panthers star was criticized as a result and he arrived in Perth with a point to prove in the Blues’ fight for survival at Optus Stadium.
Nathan Cleary put on one of the greatest State of Origin performances of all time on Sunday night
And the No. 7 star made it unmistakable that he’s the best halfback of his era, setting up two assists, scoring two goals of his own and nailing a perfect eight from the tee to cause constant distress for Queensland on Sunday.
Rugby league hasn’t seen such an inspired individual performance since John’s Origin Masterclass in 2005 and the man himself admitted there hasn’t been a better halfback than Cleary at the age of 24.
“No other halfback his age had a game like that at Origin,” he said on Nine.
He added as the attack unfolded in front of him in the second half, “There was a lot of criticism after Game 1… just early in his Rep career.

New South Wales legend Andrew Johns said Cleary is the best halfback of his age ever
“I think it was tough. But he tasted it. He was exceptional. Cleary is hosting a master class.’
Phil Gould added that Cleary’s performance was one of the greatest Origin individual performances of all time.
“I think the second half tonight was one of the really great halfback performances in Origin history,” he said.
“It ranks among the best of all time in what he’s done during that time. In the first half he was a little frantic and side by side trying to find something. A cultivator kick on Burton set him on fire and suddenly he started tearing Queensland apart.’

The New South Wales legend drew comparisons between Cleary’s “historic performance” and Johns’ in 2005.
“A historic individual performance,” said Michael Ennis of the Fox League.
“I haven’t seen a more dominant individual performance from one half from New South Wales since Andrew Johns in 2005…it was incredible from Nathan Cleary.”
Blues captain James Tedesco also praised his team-mate effusively after Sunday’s impressive win.
“After the first game there was unjustified criticism (of Cleary). But it shows what a champion player he is,” captain James Tedesco, who also praised Matt Burton and Jake Trobjevic for Game Two, told Nine Network.
“He comes out in game two and puts a clinic with a lot of pressure on him. He’s a damn good player.
“It will be a test at Suncorp (stadium). It’s packed. Queensland fans stand against the wall. We will be happy about the win tonight and then look to the next game.”
