WE WOULDN’T NORMALLY be avid readers of RSVP magazine to be honest. We just flick through it because there’s no phone reception in the hairdres… eh, doctor’s waiting room. But when they asked readers to vote for the sexiest sportsman in Ireland, we sat up and took notice.
The usual suspects are there, fashion mogul Paul Galvin, the chiselled-like-a-junior-cert-woodwork-project Rob Kearney and the mammies’ favourite G-Mac. But there are also some red herrings like the retired Kenneth Egan and Na Piarsigh clubman Seán Óg Ó hAilpín.
So, with Boylesports providing the odds, here’s who is tipped for the top of RSVP readers’ “to do” list.
The major winner is a 100/1 shot, but we still fancy him more than Adam Scott.
Natch, the captain of Ireland is super sexy. But like Rors, Ken and G-Mac he’s a long-shot to be risking money on.
The only athletics star on the list, this nomination is sure to make up for missing the Olympics and stuff. Here he is about to say a bad word.
33/1 sound like great odds to us. We’re reliably informed that JC is an icon among young ladies of a certain age these days. So if that particular phone-wielding demographic can hijack the vote, Galway could have an All-Ireland title coming their way.
Also at 33/1, Ruby won’t be used to being the outsider.

Simon Zebo and Conor Murray
Maybe it was the moustache that made Murray (25/1) more likely to top the list than Zeebs (33/1).
Seán Óg Ó hAilpín
These days, poor old BOD is only the third hottest rugby hunk.
Joining BOD at 25/1 is the clean cut former Ireland number one with the lilting Lifford accent.
16/1? Ah, ladies.

Now we’re into the big gun, and the bookies reckon the Dublin forward is Ireland’s sexiest GAA head.
It’s the hat right? Chicks love the hat.
Dreamy, dreamy T-Bowe is odds on favourite to lift whatever crown is awarded to Ireland’s sexiest man.
