Scrums, hookers and odd shaped balls

Why we love rugby.

It’s funny how we develop a sudden interest in rugby in the run up to Christmas. Is it the anticipation of the Rugby League Autumn Internationals or Ireland’s massive victory over Scotland at the weekend (yeah, we googled “rugby”)?

No. It’s probably more to do with the onslaught of rugby themed naked calendars that are being pushed on the gay market as if they were Barbra Streisand albums.

And as ever, no one does this quite like French rugby team Stade Français in their Dieux Du Stade 2013 calendar.

We’re informed that this year the calendar tells the tale of the survivors of an apocalypse through 40 beautiful photos of the team in various states of undress. But quite frankly they could have done the photo shoot in a dubious bedsit in Montmartre and we’d still be happy staring at those French hotties.

In fact we’ve spent most of the morning studying the video below. But only because we’re concerned about their performance in the Amlin Challenge Cup, obviously.

You can pick up your copy of the Dieux Du Stade 2013 calendar from Prowler.
