‘Be ballsy enough to check your balls!’

Since the Springboks won the Rugby World Cup, a few weeks ago, one of the most meme-able moments was Faf de Klerk flaunting his South African flag undies. Now he is putting it to good use, by promoting testicular cancer awareness with the #FafChallenge.

The scrum-half featured in many post-game videos drinking from the cup and meeting Prince Harry while proudly sporting the underwear. It even made an appearance on the Trophy Tour when he flashed it from the bus and even gave Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu a glimpse.

He has since partnered with Cipla to help raise awareness of testicular cancer. The #FafChallenge website reveals that testicular cancer is the most common cancer in young men (aged 15 – 49). The website also gives men tips on how to check their testicles for anything that might be a cause of worry.

The #FafChallenge encourages men to get in their speedo (or underwear) and pose for a pic in order to spread the word about the cause. Faf challenged captain Siya Kolisi and Jesse Kriel, which in turn caused a chain reaction.

Here are some of our fave results from the #FafChallenge:

Thanks to all my fanboy @fafster09 posts, I was asked to be one of the first people to do the official #FafChallenge. Of course I accepted!⠀ ⠀ The challenge: slay in your Speedo & raise some flippen’ awareness around testicular cancer while you’re at it. Okes, I’m not even Faffing around here. If our boi can check the Prince in his Speedo, then you can check your Prince after a hot shower. If your Prince has a lump in his crown jewels, there is no shame in seeing a doctor. Royalty must be protected at all costs. Early detection & treatment is key! 🥜 more info in my bio & stories⠀ ⠀ #fafchallenge #ballskills #strongertogether #cancerawareness #colab @ciplarsa
