Leicester Tigers players posed for a photo this morning before the beginning of a 25-hour record-breaking attempt to play the longest game of rugby.
It is in aid of Scotty's Little Soldiers - a charity dedicated to supporting the children of men and women killed whilst serving in the British armed forces.
The charity provides treats, outings, trips and activities for families of the fallen, with the aim of offering a respite from the daily ups and downs of coping without a loved one.
