Seattle athlete makes Top 20 'Hottest Rugby Players' list

Is it getting hot in here or is it just Jeff Hassler?

Seattle Seawolves' very own Jeff Hassler nabbed the 11th spot out of 20 in a poll for the "Hottest Rugby Players" in the Rugby World Cup. Originally from B.C., Hassler joined the Seawolves as a winger in the middle of last season, where they went on to win the MLR Championship for the second year in a row.

Hassler played for the Canadian national team in the Rugby World Cup in summer of 2019 and although Canada didn't have the best go in the RWC, Hassler was a standout...because he's "fast as lighting and hot as hell." That is a direct quote from me.

The poll was created by where they asked audiences from around the world to vote for their favorite players and Hassler was not overlooked.

From taking a quick peek at his Instagram (me, acting like I don't already follow him) he has the hair, he's got the charming smile, he's got the chat (am I assuming too much?) and he's got the adventurous spirit that takes him from a straight 10 to a 12. I mean, take a look for yourself...

I guess you'll just have to go see him in action, eh? The Seawolves season is in full swing with their first home game of 2020 January 16 at 7 p.m. at Starfire Sports in Tukwila. They are playing the Crimson Tide from Vancouver Island, B.C.

In closing, I'd like to thank Hassler's parents for bringing him into this world and Hassler himself for keeping that glowing mane...glowing.
