A university’s women’s rugby league team have kitted off for a naked charity calendar.

The Liverpool team bared all for the third year in a row to raise money for a good cause.

Their annual shots are being sold in aid of Coppafeel - a charity which encourages and teaches women on how to check their breasts regularly to detect breast cancer in the early stages and, in turn, save lives.

Last year the girls raised more than £2,000 last year for Joining Jack, a charity which aims to raise awareness and money to fight DMD (Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy), and for team costs.

It was set up by the family of Jack Johnson, six, from Wigan, who was diagnosed with DMD – a progressive muscle-wasting condition for which there is currently no cure.

The 2015 calendar went global, reaching as far as Hong Kong and Nigeria, with coverage in Cosmopolitan US, reports the Liverpool Echo.

Eve Watton, 19, a second year English and Spanish student and the captain of the team said: “The calendar really helped the team last year with away matches and equipment as women’s rugby league is really under funded.

“We couldn’t survive without it.

We chose Coppafeel because we wanted to help young women stay healthy. Every girl identifies with the charity."

“It teaches women to take their health into their own hands.

“I was terrified about doing the calendar, but it became easier because we were so comfortable around each other.

“We picked the docks because we are so proud to be in Liverpool and wanted to show the city we love.”
