Think rugby is just a bunch of large, sometimes toothless men beating the crap out of each other and then going to the pub? Well, it is. But England’s Rugby Football Union wants you to know that the boys have a sensitive side, too.
(Which is the more typical rugby guy?)
They’re so committed to it, that they’ve entered into a partnership with romance novel publisher Mills & Boon on a series of books aimed toward ladies who are tired of fantasizing about Russian princes and want to move on to burly athletes. It’s the RFU International Billionaires Series (billionaires? From rugby?), and excerpts are after the jump.
