The Yorkshire Carnegie players have given their backing to the Oddballs campaign by posing for a photo in the unique underwear which you can buy now in the club shop at Headingley Carnegie or online.

North-East based charity Oddballs aims to raise money and awareness for testicular cancer through the sale of underwear and accessories online and at events. Their goal is to make testicular cancer a talking point amongst males around the world, whilst also producing a household underwear brand.

Celebrity fans of Oddballs underwear include Alan Shearer, Mike Tindall, Mark Wright, Dame Kelly Holmes and popular Geordie duo Ant and Dec, as well as Rugby teams and players around the UK.

The company was originally launched back in 2014 by sporting pals Steve Harper, Richard Metcalfe and Paul Varley. Former Newcastle United goalkeeper Steve Harper and one-time Newcastle Falcons rugby player Richard Metcalfe teamed up with Paul Varley, former chief executive officer of Newcastle Falcons Rugby Club, to launch Oddballs, a range of colourful boxer shorts.

The three sporting friends launched the underwear brand after discussing ways to raise money for men’s cancer charities – with the aim that the resulting business would donate 10% from the sale of every pair of pants to testicular cancer charities.

You can order your Oddballs now by simply clicking here or call in at the club shop at the stadium.
