Auckland - Equipment worth R60 000 was stolen from two South African photographers in Auckland, New Zealand, reported The Star on Wednesday.

Christiaan Kotze and Barry Aldworth's items were taken after South Africa's match against Samoa at the North Harbour stadium on Saturday.

The pair's hired car was broken into near a drop-off point for the media.

"We were told it was safe to park there," said Aldworth.

Two computers, photographic equipment, money, clothes and a tent were stolen.

Last week, SuperSport journalists Brenden Nel and Gavin Rich had their car broken into at a parking lot at a hotel in Auckland. An ipod was stolen.
