A women’s rugby team stripped down to just their club socks and boots for charity in a series of saucy snaps which will be used for a calendar.
The ladies were caught on camera posing in just their club socks and boots, with jump rugby paraphernalia hiding their modesty. The pictures released for this year’s calendar are taken at the secluded grounds of the Hertfordshire club and capture the girls training.
One shot shows two teammates practicing their tackling naked. Another shows the girls high-fiving under the posts. Another shows two girls on the grass and two others standing before them with practice bags protecting their modesty.
The 2018 calendar by Hitchin Ladies Rugby Club will hit the shelves in November after their inaugural effort last year attracted praise from around the world. As a matter of fact, their recent nude photos have already attracted attention internationally after rapper 50 Cent shared their steamy snaps to his Facebook fans.
Organiser and inside centre Claire Crompton, 28, said: “We were never expecting the success we got last year but it’ll be nice if it happens again. We want to build on our success and we had a recruitment boost due to it as well. Even if people look at it and don’t want to play rugby it gets the brand out there. Someone else might see it too if it’s hanging up and see if they want to get involved with the sport. Our club is a lot of fun and we like to play good rugby – hopefully people looking at the calendar will see that we like to have fun.”
The calendars are on sale for £10. This year the ladies will be raising money for the club and money for GB Wheelchair Rugby, after their funding was slashed.
The event worker from Stevenage added: “We were looking to fund a charity as well this year and we heard on the radio that Team GB wheelchair rugby lost it’s funding and I thought it was wrong. Rugby is rugby to us, it’s important to get the message out there and raise cash. I hope people get a calendar as it is for a really good cause and if they liked last years they’ll love this years.”
