13 Pieces of Rugby Eye Candy!

As many of you know, over the last year or so, I've developed a genuine fondness for a certain sport. While Cycling is still my favorite of all time, I have to confess that:

Naturally, my love for this sport started out as a lark, even though I do truly enjoy watching matches (which I used to be able to do for free, until my best friend moved away from her flat that overlooked the stadium. Traitor.)

Anyway, this week, I thought I'd share some delightful rugby-related eye candy, in celebration of the fact that I'm going to attend my first-ever professional rugby match at Stadio Giglio here in Reggio Emilia, this Saturday. Go, Italy! Forza Italia!

So, here, for the ladies - and for certain gents - are
13 Pieces of Rugby Eye Candy

(and the countries where they play).

If I've gotten anyone listed incorrectly, I beg the forgiveness of anyone reading this page. What can I say, though? I was distracted!

Enjoy. ;)

2) Guillaume-Bousses - France

3) Frederic Cermeno - France

I could learn to like Rugby...that's some good inspiration.

Ha! My husband is French & is an absolute rugby freak. The next time he's watching a match, I'm afraid that image of Mathieu Nicolas will pop up in my mind.

WHAT is he doing to that statue?!!?

How nice to see such an original post like this one. ;)

Oh. My. Goodness. *gulp* I've never understood the rules to rugby ... but watching those athletes just doesn't hurt. ;)

Shelley Munro said...

Sigh - I love rugby. I'm going to have to write another rugby-themed story. Brent Webb plays league rather than union but even so, very nice. :)
