Hold on to your hats, gentlemen, what we have here is the Oxford University women’s rugby team posing nude for a calendar. After seeing these photos, you’ll probably look at female rugby players in a whole new light.
The photo shoot, which took place on campus and around the city, features just the girls in socks and shoes.
Tatiana Cutts, a law student at Oxford and member of the team, explains that the calendar was to celebrate the beauty of strong women:
“What we’re doing is celebrating strong women,’ she said. ‘These girls are athletics, these are their body shapes, and they should be celebrated.”
“With this calendar the club hopes to highlight the inclusiveness of women’s rugby.”
“When you play women’s rugby people have a stereotypical image of you and we wanted to confront that. We have girls of all shapes and sizes, and studying all types of academic subject.’”
Following are a few photos from the shoot. You can purchase a copy of your own here.
