Gloucester rugby players have stripped naked to pose for a charity calendar which is running from Valentine’s Day 2022 to February 14th 2023. 

The cheeky photographs feature ten members of the squad all posing with strategically placed objects which prevents them from completely baring all.

One of the nude pictures shows a selection of the rugby players standing with roses between their teeth while protecting their modesty with just rugby balls.

Others show them turning their backs to the camera while on the pitch at Kingsholm Stadium, Gloucester.

Teaming up with their main club partner, BiGDUG, the squad, who are currently third in the league, were keen to do something bold to raise money for the Gloucester Rugby Foundation. 

The charity aims to engage, educate and inspire the local community to bring about positive social impact and new opportunities through sport.

Starting on the 14th February 2022, the calendar runs through 13 months to the 14th February 2023.

The photoshoot used a combination of props such as desk chairs, shelving and ladders from BiGDUG, as well as some fantastic location shots in the tunnel, the BiGDUGOUT and pitch side at the stadium.

Lewis Ludlow, Captain of the Cherry and Whites said: ‘We spend a lot of time working with our community to help make positive changes to the lives of youngsters in the area, but it all costs money. 

‘We wanted to make a big splash so we can help even more people, and someone came up with the idea of a calendar. The players were all well up for it, and it was actually pretty funny shooting it on the day.’

Alex Brown, COO at Gloucester Rugby supported this fundraising initiative: ‘We hope this calendar is well supported by our community in helping to raise funds for the Gloucester Rugby Foundation.

‘It has been fantastic to see the team so prepared to partake in this “alternative” but fun way of raising awareness and donations for this important cause. 

‘It is their way of giving back to the community; we have also been very fortunate to have BiGDUG’s support in this fundraising collaboration.’

The calendars have been produced and donated by BiGDUG and are available to purchase online for £10.99 (£4.99 with £6 delivery) at www.bigdug.co.uk/ with 100 per cent of the proceeds going to the Gloucester Rugby Foundation.
