Hot Watch: Nikita Rukavytsya


Time to check in on one of our former Sizzle Query footballers, Nikita Rukavytsya, who plays for Perth Glory.

For those who don’t recall, here’s the BG:  he’s a Ukrainian/Australian player with a buzz cut, whom we had on standby to see how his looks would improve with both time and hair growth.

Over the weekend, 21-year-old Nikita was interviewed for an Australian show called The World Game

During the program, Kickette is mentioned as a Nikita-hottie watch source, which is brill.  (You can watch the clip here.)

Even better, we note that the cute Mr. R has grown his hair out so we can all do a compare and contrast.

Btw, please take a look at the photograph below, taken of Nikita and his homies after a recent Olyroo game – btw, he’s with Matthew Spiranovic (Nurnberg fc),Trent McClenahan (Hereford United) and Billy Celeski (Melbourne Victory). 

The lads were all fresh from the showers, and apparently Nikita smelled fantastic


Thanks a mill to BJ for the spot/vid and the story. Big kiss!

  5. Genevieve Gourcuff says:

    I actually screamed when Kickette came on the screen – it was so funny! Re Nikita – hair growth has definitely transformed this one into a fully-fledged hottie. Can't wait for the A-League to start again so I can see him in the flesh!

  6. marire penis says:

    One thing that several players on your squad share is a tendency to brain-snaps. Given our experience in the Asian Cup, query whether this is a desirable attribute at this point of the competition.

  7. no way! says:

    the buzz cut is way hotter. loving the whole skinhead russian thang.

  8. mrs celeski xx says:

  15. Tamra says:

    Hubba Hubba!

  16. brandy says:

    Ah yes… I wasn’t a fan of the buzz cut version of him, but hair grown out him is definitely hot!

  17. Oh, Kickette – your fame is growing in leaps and bounds!!

    I <3 Nikita.  He looks like the lovechild of Phil Bardsley and Nemanja (“I was robbed in the TTO”) Vidic.

  18. . says:

    Ooh, now he is what I would call hot! Could we please have some more pictures of him and some less of that androgynous Portuguese who’s skin color reminds me of dog turds. Thank you!

  19. BJ says:

    paruresis :

    i got them when they were walking back to the hotel after their showers…

    they smelt of lynx and hotness

  20. paruresis says:

    I dont wanna smell these guys after a game : )

  21. lol says:

    grin not fair, not fair and so not fair…

    LOL everything you say can and will be attributed to you!

    to the question at hand:  mad he’s gone from FF material, imho, to just run of the mill. sigh, so sad.. i just hope he gets intimately re-acquainted with a razor. post-haste!

  22. Aurynn says:

    Hmmm. The extra hair looks GOOD on him. Rauw!

  23. Rusty says:

    ooh, not bad. But still about 3 years too young for me.

  24. BJ says:

    no problem Kickette.

    yes, yes he did smell fantastic… and thats me! right next to him…ahahahaha awesome.

  25. Lindsey says:

    I most definitely would… with or without the hair

  26. k2k2milan says:

    Liking him in both hair styles.Liking the eyes. And like his accent too.

    Thumbs up!

    Lol, to the Kickette mention.
    Go Kickette!

  27. Emily (Giggsy's says:

    Congrats, Kickette, on the media mention!!!

    As for Nikita, ooooh my!  I love everything about him: hot without hair, hot with hair, gorgeous eyes, great player and adorable hybrid accent.

    So, he’s a striker, is he?  Ferg has been looking to sign another striker and I think I’ve found my preferred choice!!!  I want him in the EPL, STAT!  That way, we’ll get a chance to see more of him.  He’d look good in red, dontcha think, my fellow Red Devilettes??! <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />

  28. Blair says:

    Nummy nummy!  He looks scrumptuous.  But I definately prefer the hair a little longer.

  29. BJ says:

    mrs xabi alonso…thankyou… but i had to keep my hands to myself on this one…but i didn't with one of his team mates who is a mate of mine haha.

  31. Moongirl says:
