TWO league teams are taking the battle on the footy field to their upper lips as Movember wars get into full swing.
The Port Macquarie Sharks and the Port City Breakers will clash in a duel of moustaches.
It is all in the name of charity with Movember a month dedicated to growing a hearty moustache to raise funds and awareness for men's health.
Ben Read, from the Port Sharks and manager of Port Macquarie Hungry Jacks, who are also participating as a team, said it's great to see the footy clubs getting involved.
"We have a challenge set up between the Sharks and Breakers, and hopefully both clubs can set up a lot of support for the cause," he said.
"It will be a bit of a rivalry to see who can raise the most money and who can grow the best moustache.
"I've been growing it for one week so far so it's different, because I've had to shave it off and start again from November 1."
He said it is not so much about the funds raised, but more so the awareness it can raise in the community.
"For us it's not a goal to raise a specific amount, it's more about participation and getting as many people involved as possible to raise as much awareness as we can," he said.
"Hayden Stuart has a pretty good mo and doesn't mind some ferocious growth on the top lip.
"I wouldn't be surprised if the Bruen brothers and Chris Green come home strong."
Port Macquarie TAFE are also on the mo-train with their effort involving many at the campus including barber students.
