League Of Their Own 2006 is a black-and-white nude calendar[1] featuring 12 of the Australian rugby league players from the National Rugby League competition. The photos were taken by the Australian celebrity photographer Pedro Virgil.

The calendar was released in December 2005 and was produced in the same erotic style that has made French rugby's annual Dieux du Stade calendars so successful, with the players being photographed nude separately in various locations, both indoors and outdoors. Proceeds from the sales of League Of Their Own 2006 went to the Koori Kids foundation, an organization that uses sport to assist indigenous and non-indigenous Australian children living in rural and remote areas to achieve their goals and dreams in life. 2005 Dally M Medal winner Johnathan Thurston was chosen to appear on the cover.

The calendar featured the following players:
