These players have gone nude and have run around naked with a rugby balls so the photographer can catch them in action!
Why? The all-women Hitchin Ladies Rugby Club squad have once again stripped off for charity to raise money for the club after their funding was slashed and to promote female players in the sport.
Wearing just their club socks and boots – and nothing else – the ladies rugby tackled each other, ran through the field and hid their modesty behind practice bags in photographs for a fundraising calendar.
The 2018 calendar by Hitchin Ladies Rugby Club will hit the shelves in November after their inaugural effort last year attracted fans from around the world.
Rapper 50 Cent even shared their steamy snaps to his 40 million Facebook fans.
The pictures released for this year’s calendar are taken at the secluded grounds of their Hertfordshire club and capture the girls training.
One shot shows two teammates practicing their tackling without their kit and another shows the girls high-fiving under the posts.
Another still shows two girls laying on the grass posed to leap up into practice bags, that are protecting their mates’ modesty.
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 its 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.’
This year the ladies will be raising cash 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.’
The calendars are on sale for £10 and are available from http://shop.hitchinrugby.com.
