Heaslip is up for one Mo' YEAR

MOVEMBER is back for a fifth year and Leinster rugby plans on creating some of its very own blue magic.

Men of Leinster are currently preparing to celebrate the month where 'moustache is king' and 'knowledge is power' by offering up their upper lip as a billboard for men's health and joining Leinster players Jamie Heaslip and Cian Healy in the process.

Leinster Mo Bros simply register at Movember.com, start the month clean-shaven and then have the remainder of the month to become purveyors of knowledge and fine moustaches, all to raise awareness and funds for men's health.

All the money raised in Ireland goes directly to the Irish Cancer Society's initiative, Action Prostate Cancer.

Movember is not just for the boys. The Leinster girls can get in on the action by taking on the role as a Mo Sista for the month and encouraging the rugby loving men in their life to grow a Mo. Heaslip said: "I've been doing Movember since 2007. I grew handlebars and it looked absolutely disgusting and I got a load of abuse from my family and friends, but it was worth it."

Leinster supporters can join Jamie's Leinster Movember team by logging on to mobro.co/jheaslip.
