Introducing the WAGs of Rugby League
We have heard about football WAGs for years, and there have been many high-profile women who have had a footballer on their arm. However, within other sports there are also some intelligent and beautiful women who cheer their partner on from the sidelines. Rugby league, for instance, boasts a few high-profile couples, and the WAGs recently raised £20,000 for the charity Life For a Kid. If you’re not from the north of England, you’re probably not familiar with Rugby union’s faster, fitter cousin. Rugby league was invented during a dispute over payments for players in the late 1800s, which led to the splintering of the sport, and two different games.
The annual Brownlow awards ceremony was held in the last couple of weeks, which rewards the fairest and best players to have played throughout the AFL season, and the WAGs of the Australian Football stars stole the show at one of the biggest casinos in Melbourne..
The main event was split into two venues, due to the Sydney Swans awaiting to take on Western Bulldogs later that week, with the Sydney Cricket Ground hosting the smaller event, whilst all the biggest names graced the red carpet at the Crown Casino.
Premier League champion Jeffrey Schlupp has caused a fight between two of his former lovers this week. The left-sided footballer is currently dating fashion designer Amy Jackson, but the incident did not involve her, but two lovers from his past.
Schlupp has a child with Callan Glover, who still lives in his mansion on the outskirts of Leicester, and police had to be called on her when she attacked another former lover of the footballer.
The Ghana international hooked up with Natasha Taylor whilst on holiday in Marbella, and but it turned out to only be a fling, although that did not prevent from his baby-mother from coming across pictures of the pair on social media.
Michelle Marsh was in the music video for England football song Come on England from 2004, and coincidentally ended up becoming a WAG.
The former Page 3 model was once a regular feature in newspapers and magazines (as well as teenagers walls), but is now 33 years-old and quit the modelling industry to be a mother to her children.
She is now married to lower league footballer Will Haining, who proposed to her on Valentines Day in 2005, but she has come back into my thoughts for her music video from the year before.
Leah Shevlin, who is engaged to Scotland international Allan McGregor, was cleared off all charges regarding a motoring offence of dangerous driving in court this week, before travelling to London for her hen party.
The WAG was branded ‘rude and arrogant’ by the judge in court, despite being cleared of driving a car at a traffic warden, but she didn’t allow that to get to her as she was out celebrating within days.
Former Rugby League star Braith Anasta’s wife, Jodi, has long been known as one of NRL’s most glamorous WAGs, but is now refusing to accept the tag, following her husband’s retirement from the playing field.
Anasta has been modelling since the age of 13, but broke onto the acting scene with a role in Home And Away when she was 20, and now splits her time between acting and modelling.
The 30 year-old is still as gorgeous as ever, and is currently enjoying an ambassador role for This August’s Jeans For Genes Day.
The WAGS were out at Wimbledon last weekend as the sporting world and especially those who bet on Andy Murray watched in amazement as first Victoria Beckham entered the Royal Box and then as Murray won the Grand Slam title.
Murray’s performance on court was simply astonishing and maybe players of the England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland national teams could do with watching his dedication, commitment and attitude if they ever want to achieve success on the international stage. We can all stand up and applaud Murray’s success but tennis betting fans are likely to have watched with keen envy.
The Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain has a hard life, getting paid fortunes to occasionally get on the end of a Cristiano Ronaldo cross or through ball. He shares the workload with the French international striker Karim Benzema, so doesn’t even have all the pressure of providing the goals to complement Ronaldo’s scoring prowess.
Don’t feel too sorry for Gonzalo, though, it’s not all work, work, work for the Argentinian international. He can go to the casino as often as he likes and he certainly doesn’t have to play poker for free stakes! To make his luxurious life even more amenable, his long term girlfriend Soledad Fandino is now his wife. The Argentinian actress and model now spends her time looking after their son and keeping herself beautiful, which is not too difficult.
Greek striker Georgios Samaras was not seen as a fantastic scorer during his time at Manchester City, but he has scored a belter this time [thought I better not say screamer].
Alexandra Loizou is a professional model and TV presenter. She was born in Greece, so she will be cheering on Georgios when Greece get Euro 2012 underway on Friday June 8th.
Looking at Alexandra, as I have been forced to do in order to write this story, I can see why Samaras might have trouble concentrating on his football. Now the Greek striker plays for Celtic in the frozen North, he needs something to keep him warm on the cold winter’s nights, and I cannot think of anything better than his gorgeous girlfriend.
The only problem I have had this week here at JustWagsNews was deciding which Swedish WAG to write about! Sweden can certainly produce gorgeous models and talented footballers. It may be cold in Sweden in the winter but I’m sure this lovely lady would be able to rouse most of the male Swedish population and probably most European males out of hibernation.
