Hunks set to strike a pose.
WELSH rugby beefcake will be strutting its stuff on the catwalk in Cardiff - just hours after taking on the Aussies.
Six rugby hunks from the national squad facing Australia on Sunday are due to take part in a charity fashion show the following night.
Along with six girls from the Wales netball team, the rugby stars will be showing off the latest fashions from the high street.
Among the catwalk kings lined up to be models for a night are Welsh props Spencer John and Darren Morris, centre Jamie Robinson, full-back Kevin Morgan and the newlycapped Anthony Sullivan.
The recently-appointed Wales player development officer - and former international scrum-half - Rupert Moon is another named in the party to pose.
They will be taking part in the sell-out fashion show at St David's Hotel & Spa in aid of the George Thomas Hospice Care charity.
All the clothes are being supplied by the Debenhams store in Cardiff.
And in the audience will be two of Britain's leading dress designers, Andrew Fionda and Ren Pearce, who have also donated one of their black silk Grecian-style ballgowns for auction at the event.
The first half of the show is featuring Debenhams' ownbrand evening wear, followed by the very latest in designer evening wear.
George Thomas Hospice chief executive Margaret Pritchard said:
"The show is a total sell-out, which is not surprising considering the models on view.
"We are very grateful to the Welsh Rugby Union and the Wales Netball Academy for lending us some of their star players."
All the money raised will go to help finance the George Thomas Hospice home care nursing service.
