PHOTOS: Nashville Grizzlies Hit The Locker Room For The Latest Hot Rugby Calendar

originalThe Nashville Grizzlies ruby team are back with their 2016 fundraising calendar.

Last year’s calendar featured the boys rolling around in the mud. This year, they’re freshening up in the locker room.

The team’s goal is to create a safe space for rugby players of all sexual orientations, backgrounds and experience to come together, free of the bullying and bias that often comes with non-gay team sports.

“We are in the middle of our season and are raising money to help make sure that playing rugby on an affirming team is affordable,” the team said in a press release. “We do our best to cover expenses via fundraising so rugby is accessible to everybody, even if they don’t have much money.”
