London: Rugby World Cup WAGs are not just pretty faces but are talented career women too, in their own right.
Among the bunch of this year’s breed of WAGs supporting their sporty other-halves in New Zealand are sports stars, actresses, singers and even members of the royal families, the Daily Mail reported.
Zara Philip, the Queen’s granddaughter, who recently married England outside centre Mike Tindall, leads the pack as the most internationally recognised face, followed by The Saturday’s singer Una Healy, who established herself as a successful singer much before meeting England’s Ben Foden.
‘The X factor’ finalist Lucie Jones, who has now turned her hand to lingerie modelling, is dating Welsh back Leigh Halfpenny.
Some of the wives and girlfriends of footballers are a step ahead of the others as they are equally skilled in the sporting world, matching those of their partner’s.
Dan Carter, who has been voted New Zealand’s sexiest man several times, is dating former international hockey player Honor Dillon and three-time Olympic gold winner Stephanie Rice, who broke three swimming records in Beijing, also matches her partner, Australia’s Quade Cooper, in the athlete stakes.
Among the beauty queens is Jewish model Alexandra Rosenfield, who is married to Italian captain Sergio Parisse and Ireland captain Brian O`Driscoll is married to Irish actress and writer Amy Huberman.
