Footy's hot bodies bare all for charity

Some of the NRL's and AFL's biggest and sexiest names have stripped to raise funds for breast cancer.

They've bared all (or nearly all) for the 2009 Gods Of Football Calendar, to be released in three editions - one for rugby league, one for Australian rules and one with the best shots of both codes.

Matt Ballin, who played in Manly's NRL premiership winning team, adorns the cover of the rugby league edition, while Essendon utility Andrew Welsh is the hot shot on the Aussie rules cover.

Ballin, recently voted the sexiest man in the NRL, said he was honoured to take part in such a worthy cause.

"Knowing it's for such a worthwhile cause, I jumped at the chance to take part," he said.

"I hope the public get behind the campaign and go out and buy the calendar."

The NRL edition also features fellow Manly premiership star Brett Stewart, and Matt Cooper of St George Illawarra.

2008 Hawthorn premiership star and Norm Smith medallist Luke Hodge features in the AFL edition, as does team mate Trent Croad.

The McGrath foundation was created up in 2005 by Jane McGrath, who died earlier this year, with her husband and champion cricketer Glenn.

It aims to raise money to put breast care nurses in rural and regional Australia.

The calendars are now on sale, and a DVD and coffee table book of the images will be released later this year.
