A women’s rugby team has stripped off and braved the freezing winter weather to pose for a nude calendar which they hope will raise the profile of the game.

The Hitchin Ladies rugby team from Hertfordshire got their kit off to help them bring in vital¬†club funds and raise awareness of women’s rugby.

Team member Claire Crompton, 27, said:

Everyone was a bit shy to begin with but by the end of it we were all just walking around naked. We all shower together at the weekend so it’s not too different to that I suppose.

It did get a bit awkward when we tried out a scrum though. We’re all really good friends and wanted to do something fun to help raise money so this seemed like a great idea.

She added that there was no photoshopping and that the images, all of them including curves and cellulite. Rather wonderfully all the women came away feeling confident about the shoot.
