SCRUMMY Nadia Forde looks pitch perfect as she togs out for her new calendar just days before she prepares to head to the Rugby World Cup.

And Nadia will try her best not to ruffle too many feathers by supporting three teams close to her heart in the tournament.

While she will be cheering on Ireland in our opening game against Canada on Saturday, WAG Nadia will also be travelling over to Cardiff on Sunday to support her boyfriend playing for Wales.

And she will also be cheering on Italy – her maternal family’s home.

Dubliner Nadia (30), poses here in a series of sizzling pictures for her 2016 calendar, which goes on sale soon.

The I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! star is dating Welsh lock Dominic Day (30).

Dominic, who plays for Bath, is a towering 6’6”, compared to 5’6” Nadia.

“It’s an awkward one to answer when I’m asked who I’m supporting, as I’m going to annoy my Italian side of my family for saying I’m not supporting Italy, I’m going to annoy my boyfriend for saying I’m not supporting Wales and I’m going to annoy my est friends for saying I’m not supporting Ireland,” she smiles.

“I hope they all do well. I think I will definitely go to the first Wales game next week.

“I went to the one against Ireland in Cardiff. When I’m free I go and support him when I can and that’s for his Bath games as well, so when I’m visiting at the weekend, I go to his club games. He comes to my job with me sometimes as well.

“A lot of my friends give me awful abuse. Of course a couple of my best friends, their husbands play for Ireland. I support them and I want them to do really well. I

“I actually think Ireland have a great chance in the World Cup this year.

“But I want Dom to have the best World Cup of his life and I want to him to have the best experience ever, so it’s kind of going on a neutral ground, supporting the individual.”

Nadia has been dating Dominic since March and was introduced to him by Bath man Peter Stringer’s wife Debbie, who is one of her best friends.

The Clontarf, Co. Dublin, native  laughs when asked if she has a thing for blonde rugby players. 

“Because I went out with Luke Fitzgerald,” she giggles. 

“I think it’s just hanging out in the same circles. When you hang out with your friends and their husbands and those circles, you kind of meet people through that. 

“It just happens to be a relationship with someone in a similar career, but they’re totally different people. 

“There haven’t been any other rugby people!”

As well as Luke, she was previously in a long-term relationship with Dublin DJ Mark Noble and has been linked to golfer Rory McIlroy.

“Rory and I are just friends, still are,” she adds.
