Wellington - All Blacks loose forward Adam Thomson has had his two prized Rugby World Cup jerseys stolen from his home in a burglary.

According to the Stuff.co.nz website, the 29-year-old tweeted his misfortune after arriving home to find his Dunedin apartment ransacked in what he described as a ''meticulous'' job.

Thomson, who has recently been overseas, posted the following tweet: ''Came home to find my apartment has been meticulously burgled. Real scum of society who think they have the right to invade a person's home.''

He then followed a few minutes later with: ''I don't care about the replaceable things, but what lowlife steals my worldcup test jerseys?''

Some of his 5 226 twitter followers were quick to join in his anger and offer the 24-Test All Black their support.

David Clegg summed up what most people will be thinking in tweeting: ''Wow that really sucks. I hope they catch the scumbag and give the All Blacks front row 5 minutes alone with them.''
