The RPA have been championing the return of the moustache this month as partners of 'Movember', the charity initiative that aims to change the face of men's health. The Gloucester Rugby squad have been participating - with varying degrees of success!
The phenomenon that is Movember involves men, or 'Mo Bros', with support from 'Mo Sistas', grooming and growing a mo throughout the month formerly known as November to raise money for The Prostate Cancer Charity.
As partners of Movember, the RPA (Rugby Players Association) Benevolent Fund will also receive 20% of all rugby related donations made to the TPCC for Movember throughout the month.
Over 200 players across the Premiership, Championship and beyond have signed up to become citizens of Movember and are now into the final week of their mo growing month showcasing a range of mo styles for all to see.
With the end of the month in sight, the race is on amongst the players to raise the most money for Movember.
The Gloucester Rugby Mo Bros would love your support to help them challenge for that top of the Prem position.
To sponsor a player or a team, and support two great charities, visit Movember.com and search for your chosen player to sponsor him on line.
You can sponsor the whole team by clicking on the team icon next to any player's Movember profile.
NB. Don't leave it too late, but you can continue to sponsor your favourite Mo Bros into December and beyond at http://uk.movember.com
