NRL Rugby Players: Speedo Jocks & Shirtless Hunks – Photo Gallery

Shirtless NRL Rugby Players in Speedos. If you are like our friend Deena, you’d be intrigued why a lot of rugby players are often photographed wearing Speedo trunks. Why indeed? They’re not swimmers, or divers, or underwater hockey players (yup there’s such a thing as underwater hockey) so why do these rugby hunks love them their Speedos so much? The only reason we can think of is that skimpy briefs-style Speedo suits are the best thing to wear during their water-based training. Or maybe they just really really love them their female and gay fans. Hehe.

Anyhoo, let’s check out some rugby hunks in the National Rugby League (NRL) in their Speedo trunks, shall we? Let’s start with Famewatcher favorite Cooper Cronk, the sexy hot halfback of the Melbourne Storm. You can see more of The Coops in an earlier post we wrote about him: Cooper Cronk in Speedo.

Second in our group of Speedo-wearing NRL athletes is our imaginary rugby boyfriend Matt Ballin. Matt is currently with the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles where he is the hooker. [Note: The hooker position “roughly equates to a short Lineman or stocky fullback” according to BL King of Yahoo Sports.]

Here’s another Speedo pic of Matt Ballin.

Next up is Matt Cooper who appears to be enjoying the sea by his lonesome. Matt currently plays centre for the St George Illawarra Dragons.


We can’t find a briefs-style Speedo photo for Michael Jennings, centre for the Sydney Roosters, so we have to settle with this pic of our rugby jock in his swim shorts. Hehe.
