London: British women have polled rugby players as the sexiest sportsmen as compared to good-looking footballers.
According to a survey conducted by dating website zoosk.co.uk, more than a third of British ladies prefer players with the odd shaped rugby ball and rated the rough and tumble rugby for breeding the best bodies.
Meanwhile, only 16 percent said that they would score with pretty-boy footballers.
Among the favourites of the fairer sex were rugby hotties Ben Foden, Jonny Wilkinson, Mark Cueto, Ireland’s Rob Kearney and All Black sensation Dan Carter.
“This survey of singles proves that few interests are as attractive as playing sports,” the Daily Star quoted Alex Mehr, Zoosk co-founder as saying.
“The biggest surprise for us was that rugby beat football as the sexiest sport,” Mehr added.
