Hackney RFC are showing their support for the very worthy charity SKRUM, based in Swaziland and trying to combat the world high levels of HIV, by growing our own soup strainers over the month of November - now redubbed MO-vember.

For doing this all we ask is some small donation to SKRUM in order to recompense those who grow the facial fuzz.

If you are unable to grow the tasche due to work comitments or being (like) a girl thats fine, you just have to shell out twice as much for those that do.

For those that do grow there will be a magnificent prize for the winner of the growing competition - which will be judged on a plethora of reasons not just length and girth. Style and effort is also extremely important.

Anyone who wishes to take part can join the Movember facebook group.
