In this week’s Sports Stud, our quest to put the spotlight on hot athletes, we travel down under to Australia where we find the sexy 27 year old Nick Youngquest – a professional rugby league footballer for the Crusaders RL club of Europe’s Super League. Personally, I don’t think I’ll be able to top this one (that’s what she said). But seriously, this guy is super hot and has pictures galore for you to enjoy. And honestly after going through them all…David Beckham who? Cristiano Ronaldo what? This guy has gotten a lot of attention and I think he should get a lot more.

In 2006, he created a lot of controversy when he posed for the Naked Rugby League Calendar 2007-08 because in his pose, one hand was placed partially over his genitalia. The NRL reacted by stating that they didn’t endorse or authorize the calendar. It was all for a good cause though, as the sales of the calendar went to raise funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation. His face and body have been in demand in front of the camera ever since.

In June of 2009, Youngquest married So You Think You Can Dance Australia contestant Kassy Lee. How did they meet you might wonder? they actually met at the Cosmopolitan Galliano 2008 Hottest Bartender of the Year Awards. Cheers to that!

Youngquest participated in the Checkum campaign, which is in association with Macmillan Cancer Support, where they features posters of celebrities that send the message that there is no embarrassment in getting check out for prostate cancer. Here are his photo for the campaign:

Nick! Stop being a ball hog and pass it to me…

Come on boys now lets get to it, strike a pose, there’s nothing to it…

No Youngquest, you certainly do not have anything to be embarrassed about.

After he…popped his cork.

Bubble butt & bubbly – a perfect combination.

Santa? Is that you?

I don’t know about you but I just wish he wasn’t standing in the way so I could see the scenic body of water in the background. LOL.

There’s the luck gal – they look like a really cute couple!

It kinda seems that he’s taking modeling more seriously then rugby. Nothing wrong with that!

Again…pass me the ball would ya?

Alas, the famous picture that created so much controversy (left) and another hot one (right).

So what do you think of Nick Youngquest?
