FORGET THE dignified nudity of the Calendar Girls or the wanton display of assets by the Hunky Dory ladies - the Young Munster women’s rugby team have put together a calendar that shows them as what they are, a real rugby team.

FORGET THE dignified nudity of the Calendar Girls or the wanton display of assets by the Hunky Dory ladies - the Young Munster women’s rugby team have put together a calendar that shows them as what they are, a real rugby team.

With the help of Limerick Leader photographer Owen South, the team have put together a calendar that reflects their serious work ethic on the pitch, and hope to raise a few quid in the process.

“They were completely set-up shots, we didn’t want it to be a glamour calendar,” explained Jennifer Copley. “I really wanted it to be a rugby calendar, I didn’t want it to be a ‘glamour girl’, Hunky Dory type of thing. I wanted to show people that we really play rugby, because a lot of the time we get asked if we play tag rugby, I wanted to show that we do the line-outs and the scrums, but I also wanted to show one or two shots of the girls looking nice as well.”

The calendar is available at a cost of €10. Contact Jennifer on 085-1315665.
