THE Risdon Cup has not always been kind to the UQ Gatton Black Pigs this season but this weekend the rugby club hopes to let its collective hair down while raising money for a good cause.

Roma are the visitors on Saturday at Hugh Courtenay Oval on the campus with four games scheduled and plenty of post-match entertainment.

The club is hosting its annual Ladies Day, which funds a donation to the breast cancer foundation.

The Black Pigs will be wearing special jerseys, which will be auctioned off later in the afternoon.

There is also a marquee where an entry fee of $50 will entitle you to an afternoon of food and drink.

Dress standard is cocktail though because it is on grass, ladies should wear flat shoes.

The forecast for Saturday is for rain but the club says there will be plenty of shelter available.

The first ladies' game kicks off at 12.45pm with the A-Grade clash at 3pm.
